    • Native Celebrate Golden Wedding
      Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Reinking Married April 4, 1879 - Many Help Celebrate
      Mr. and Mrs. Chris Reinking widely known and highly respected citizens of Tipton, on Thursday, April 4th, 1929, observed the fiftieth return of their wedding day. But a limited number of married couples are granted such a privilege. In accordance with the wish of the jubiliant pair, both of whom are loyal members of the Lutheran Church at Tipton appropriate services were conducted in Zion's Lutheran Church, a large number of relatives, friends and acquaintances participating.
      The local pastor J. Kiesow, briefly addressed the celebrating couple in both the American and German language, taking for his texts Romans 8, 38-39, and Isaiah 46, 4. The Quartet consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Will Seidal, Mrs. Warren Hobbi* and J.H. Pottberg, accompanied by Kathryn Reinking renedered two beautiful selections, entitled "I Shall Be Like Him" for their first number and "Silver Threads Among the Gold." as their concluding song.
      After the services at the Church the celebration continued on the Reinking farm northwest of town. A beautiful basket dinner was served under the direction of the Ladies Aid of Zion's Lutheran Church. The afternoon was spent in pleasant conversation, all present enjoying a good time.
      The dinner room was beautifully decorated in Gold and White crepe paper, te streamers leading to a gorgeous Angel Food Cake, that was presented to the honorees by their children, which was baked and decorated by Margaret Greif.
      The honored couple received many beautiful and useful gifts from those present, in the late afternoon all departed wishing Mr. and Mrs. Reinking many more happy years together. At about nine o'clock the Tipton Band surprised them and came to their home in town and played three beautiful selections for them, which pleased them very much.
      Mr. Reinking was born at West Palia, Germany, April 27th, 1850, when 6 weeks old, his mother passed away and at the age of 7 years his ****** passed away leaving h*** **** when 17 he came to America working at Iowa and in **** *he earlier settlers taking a homestead in Osborne county. On April 4th 1879 he was united in Holy Matrimony to Miss Katherine Gunn, who was born in Schleswich Holstein, Germany, October 17, 1861. In 1875, she came to America with her parents living in Osborne county, living there only a short time after their marriage, they moved to Mitchell county on a farm 1 1-4 miles north of Tipton, where they resided until they moved to their retired home in Tipton, in the fall of 1927.
      Mr. and Mrs. Reinking celebrated their Silver Wedding anniversary 25 years ago and this month had the honor to celebrate their fiftieth which is a destination not many reach. To their union thirteen children were born, nine of whom are living and all had the pleasure of being with their parents that day with the exception of one son, John, who lives in Florida. Mr. and Mrs. Reinking have 16 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
      May the remainder of the life of the principal celebrants in this rare event be fraught with such blessings as flow from the inexhaustable source of divine grace in Christ Jesus.
