Golden Wedding Anniversary

      Mr. and Mrs. William Bottleman observed their fiftieth wedding anniversary Tuesday, November 3, by receiving friends and relatives at an open house at the home of their daughter, Mrs. J. C. Coonrod, during the afternoon from two o'clock until five. They were the recipients of many gifts, flowers and congratulatory messages from neighbors and friends. A Golden Wedding book presented to them by their grandson, Lorraine Coonrod and his wife was a most appropriate for the occasion. Refreshments were served at a table centered bridal cake and gold candlesticks.

      Mr. and Mrs. Bottleman were married on Nov. 3 1892 at the Methodist church in Strawberry Point by the Rev. Haywood. Mrs. Haywood and the Haywood's daughter were their attendants. Before her marriage Mrs. Bottleman was Mary Zeuch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Zeuch of Strawberry Point. She was born on April 24, 1874. Mr. Bottleman was born on August 9, 1870 at Clayton Center. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Bottleman. Orphaned at an early age he made his home in the vicinity of Clayton Center and Elkader until his marriage.

     The couple established their home in Strawberry Point, where they lived for six years. Their twin daughters, Minnie H. and Mattie M. Bottleman were born there in 1839. The family then moved to a farm near Lamont where they lived for the next twenty four years, and they came to Oelwein twenty years ago. Their daughters, Mrs. William H. Whitman and Mrs. J.C. Coonrod also lived in Oelwein and in 1923 Mrs. Whitman died. Besides their remaining daughter, Mrs. Coonrod, the Bottlemans have two grandchildren, Loraine Coonrod, of Oelwein and Lloyd Whitman, with the U.S. Marines in San Diego, California.
