Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Ullrich Celebrate an Important Date in Their Wedded
Mr. and Mrs. Jos. F. Ullrich, of the town of Worthington, on Thursday of
last week celebrated the silver or 25th anniversary of their marriage, which
occurred at Freemont Centre, Ill., on Oct. 24th, 1882. A large number of
invitations had been sent out, which were freely responded to, and about 75
of their relatives and friends assembled to assist in the festivities, among
whom were the following from Worthington:
Rev. Father John Sherman, Dr. and Mrs. C.P. Dolan, Miss Glasgow, A.M.
Renner, Misses Calara and Myrtle Maine and P.J. Martin. Mr. and Mrs. Ullrich
received a large collection of handsome and appropriate presents as
reminders of the occasion.
Joseph F. Ullrich is one of Nobles county's most substantial and progressive
farmers. He and his estimable spouse came to this county nineteen years ago
and they have developed one of the finest farm homes in the county, and have
become noted far and wide for their genial hospitality. Mr. Ullrich has
during the past summer remodeled and enlarged his residence and fitted it up
with many modern conveniences at an expense of several thousand dollars, and
they have a home that is excelled by few if any at the county capital. While
they have been fortunate in a material way, as the result of industry and
thrift, they have been equally blessed in their home life, as nine
interesting children have been given them to gladden their hearts.
It is always a pleasure to record such anniversaries as these, and the
Advance takes pleasure in joining the many friends of the worthy couple in
wishing them a long life and a continuance of the blessings which they have
