Schneider, Mr./Mrs. M. (Gold - 1 FEB 1924)

Mr. and Mrs. Schneider celebrated their golden wedding last Sunday in a very fitting manner.

The affair, which was a surprise to the couple, had bee carefully planned beforehand and everything was in ship shape.

Their pastor, Rev. V. M. Kieper, spoke feelingly from the text found in Psalms 116: 12, after which the golden wedding ceremony was performed, which in turn was followed by a very bounteous dinner served to all present.

Mr. and Mrs. Schneider were both born in Russia-Poland and they were married there in the village of Rodam, Feb. 1st, 1874, by Rev. Otto Wistehube. Churches were far away and they were obliged to drive ten Russian miles, its equivalent here would be fifty miles. The trip was long and took all night as travel wasn't as swift as now, but it was finally accomplished and they were happily married.

Three children were born to the, William of Medford, Mrs. J. Bremer of Dorchester, and one son who died in Russia at the age of nine years. Besides these children they now have eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Mrs. Schneider also has three brothers and one sister living.

They came to the United States in 1893 and settled near Gillett, Wis.
