  • Notes 
    • Golden Wedding

      Mr. and Mrs. John B. Hett celebrated the rare occasion of a golden wedding anniversary on Friday in the presence of their children and grand-children. The celebratory couple took their vows on September 26, 1852 before Pastor Wunderlich in Waterloo. Mr. and Mrs. Hartmann Schnarr, both long dead, functioned as witnesses. Mr. John B. Hett originated in Hessen, Germany and settled in Berlin in 1845 and followed the cabinet-makers's trade. Mrs. Hett came to Berlin with her father, Mr. J. H. Heller, at the age of 9 years.

      A festive meal took place at Dr. Hett's residence on Friday afternoon at 5: 00 o'clock; at which four generations were represented. All the children of the celebratory couple were present, namely, Mrs. L.H. Drumm of Watseka, Ills; Mrs. C.B. Webb of Springfield, Mass; Mr. A.B. Hett of Buffalo, and Mrs. M. Massell and Dr. J.E. Hett of Berlin. May Mr. and Mrs. Hett spend many more years, happy and content together!
