Parents of 13 children, including two pairs of twins, Mr. and Mrs. John Maloney, who were married 50 years ago today, are still very active and able to celebrate the jubilee.  The celebration will take place Sunday, consisting of a family dinner in the Beaumont hotel at noon, followed by an afternoon with children and grandchildren at their home, 903 N. Broadway.

John Maloney and Mary Tracy were married Oct. 4, 1885 in St. Joseph’s church , Oconto, and moved to Green Bay a few months later, living on the West side ever since.  Mrs. Maloney was born in Ottawa, Canada, 67 years ago and Mr. Maloney is a native of Binghamton, N.Y., where he was born 60 years ago. He has been employed by the Northwestern railroad for 56 years, making him the oldest employee in years of service still being active duty.  He is a section foreman.

Of the 13 children born to the couple, all were living until last spring, Edward, the oldest, having passed away on March 4.  The remaining children are:  Arthur and Howard, Green Bay, Henry, Sheboygan, Mrs. Evelyn Manley, Mrs. Alphonse Mahoney, Mrs. Patrick Murphy, John and Paul, all of Green Bay, Esther, Earl, Joseph, and Josephine, at home.  There are 19 grandchildren of whom the youngest is “Paddy” Murphy, ten day old son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Murphy.
