Fargo Residents
  Observe Golden
    Wedding Friday


Govenor Ross is Speaker
at Program Honoring Mr.
and Mrs. F. J. Graber


      (Special in The News-Tribune)
     WILDER - With the Governor Ross as a guest Mr. and Mrs. Frederick J. Graber celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with a community party at the Fargo community hall Friday evening.  More than 200 relatives and friends were present from many Boise Valley communities.
   Charles Paine of Fruitland introduced Governor Ross, who gave an interesting talk in which he mentioned association with the Graber family more than a quarter of a century ago.  Musical numbers and the re-reading of the marriage vows featured the evening.
     Mr. and Mrs. Graber were married October 5, 1883, at Burlington, Iowa, with Rev. Joseph Stumberger, pastor of the Presbyterian church there, officiating.  Rev. Minnie J. Dickinson, pastor of the Fargo Community church, re-read the vows Friday evening.
     As a token of esteem from friends and relatives Rev. Dickinson presented Mr. and Mrs. Graber with overstuffed arm chairs.  Mr. and Mrs.. Graber's seven children, 13 grandchildren and three great grandchildren were present.  In addition there are six other grandchildren who were not present.  Two sons died in infancy.
     Mr. and Mrs. Graber and children came from Minnesota to Idaho in November, 1906 and in December of that year filed on their homestead in Fargo which has since been their home.
