      Mr. And Mrs. Franz Rudow Celebrate Golden Wedding Anniversary: Married in Germany


      Mr. and Mrs. Franz Rudow are today celebrating their Golden Wedding anniversary. Fifty years ago today, July 20, 1883, they were married at Perritz, Germany.

      In commemoration, the Ladies' Aid of St. James Lutheran church are holding a surprise celebration in the basement of the church and a huge wedding cake all lighted with candles is being presented to the happy couple.

      Both are 73 years of age and enjoy the best of health. Mr. Rudow can not forbear from being active in the plumbing and tinsmithing trade in which he has been engaged for 60 years and each day works with his son at the shop. Both Mr. and Mrs. Rudow were born at Perritz, Germany. The year after they were married their parents and the parents' children all decided to come to Canada. They came over on the steamship Moravia, now out of use. Of this group who came to Canada at this time there remains only Mr. and Mrs. Franz Rudow, of Elmira, Mrs. Rudow's brother, Mr. C. Schultz, 82 of Pembroke, and a sister-in-law, Mrs. W. Schultz, also 82 of Pembroke.

      Mr. and Mrs. Rudow lived at Pembroke for 11 years, moving from there to Waterloo where they lived for 10 years. From Waterloo they moved to Elmira in July, 1906, and have lived here since that time, 27 years ago. He has been established in his present business for the past 21 years.

      There were seven children, seventeen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

      A reunion of the family is being held on Saturday when visitors are expected from Toronto, Kitchener and New Dundee.
