Voight, Mr./Mrs. F.M. (26 MAR 1931)
The home of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Voight was the scene of a family reunion on April 26, the occasion being their golden wedding anniversary. To many of us it was a surprise to learn that they had been married 50 years. Mr. Voight who is 74 years old was born at Woodland, Wis., March 26, 1857. Mrs. Voight is 67 years old, having been born at Kekoskee, Jan. 12, 1864. Her maiden name being Mary DeLoye.
Their marriage took place at Kekoskee, Dodge Co., April 26, 1891, Rev. Wm. Trevor officiating.
Here they lived for a number of years later living in Oshkosh, where Mr. Voight was in business. They came to Loyal 18 years ago where they owned and operated Hotel Central for a number of years.
As the guests arrived and were greeted by the honored couple, we felt it was a rare privilege to be present at this, their golden day. The decorations were beautiful, the color scheme of gold and white being carried out. The center piece on the dining room table was a lovely bouquet of yellow roses, a gift of the grandchildren. A large wedding cake in white and yellow and bearing the dates 1881 and 1931 occupied a prominent place. After a bountiful dinner which was so nicely served and to which every one did justice. Mrs. Voight opened the gifts and such beautiful ones they were. There several several five dollar gold pieces and a number of other gifts in gold and silver, also a lovely bouquet of yellow and orchid flowers from relatives in Long Beach, Calif.
The afternoon was spent in a social time and singing.

All present felt that the occasion was a time of pleasant memories and a time long to be remembered.
