Observe 64th Wedding Date
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Finkral observed their sixty-fourth wedding anniversary at their home here in Madison, last evening (Wednesday), when a group of about twenty-five relatives gathered for a social evening. At that time seven of their children and the families were present. Other members of the family visited in the parental home during the afternoon, in order to break up the crowd, somewhat.
Bessie Holy and James Finkral were married Jan. 31, 1898, at the Schoolcraft Church ten miles west and two north of Madison. They made their home on a farm a quarter mile west of this church for the next fifty-two years, having moved to Madison in 1950.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Finkral, who are 89 and 83, respectively enjoy pretty good health, and are up and about, doing for themselves, day by day. Their daughter, Mrs. Rose Sobotka makes her home with them. Source: The Madison Star-Mail, Thur. Feb. 1, 1962, page 1.
