BECKER: Francis m: 5 June 1865 (co. mar. index v.4 p.6) to: Catharine Runion (Catherine (Katharina) RAMIAN/from researcher-see contributors page) FOUR GENERATIONS AT GOLDEN JUBILEE EVENT IN CITY TODAY MR. AND MRS. FRANK BECKER, SR., OBSERVE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF DAY THEY PLIGHTED THEIR TROTH WEDDED AT NEWTON JUNE 5, 1865-FAMILY REUNION Four generations are gathered today at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Becker, Sr., 2305 Wollmer street to join in the celebration of the golden jubilee anniversary of the marriage of the couple. The six living children of the couple, many of the 26 grandchildren and the one great grandchild are present for the family reunion which is a happy gathering. Mr. and Mrs. Becker, the latter Miss Katerine Remeion before her marriage, pledged their troth in vows taken at St. Peter's church in the town of Newton on June 5, 1865 and since that time have made their home in this city with the exception of a short time spent at Chicago. Mr. Becker was for years engaged in business in the city, on Eighth street, but of late years has retired. Seven children blessed the union, one of whom, Joseph Becker, met his death in a fall from the hospital when the new building was being erected some years ago. All of the other children are here today for the golden wedding event, being Mrs. Barbara Griffon, of Chicago; Mrs. Mary Kaufman, this city; Frank of Two Rivers; Michael of Brillion; John, this city; and George of Thorpe, Wis. Little Lyle Peletier, great grandson of the couple is also here. He is a son of a daughter of Mrs. Griffin, of Chicago. High mass was said at St. Boniface church for Mr. and Mrs. Becker this morning, four grandsons of the couple serving at the mass while a granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Becker presided at the organ during the services. All of the children of the couple were present at the service. Later a photograph of the four generations at the celebration was arranged for. Mr. Becker is 78 years of age and his wife 72. Both enjoy excellent health and as they received the congratulations of children, neighbors and friends today their thoughts must have reverted back to the morning fifty years ago when they started life's journey hand in hand. Then they were rich only in possession of each other's love a love that has been constant and the flame of which burns brightly today. A family dinner was held and the day was given over to the happiness which an event of the character of the celebration, with such surroundings must afford. A large circle of friends will join in tendering to Mr. and Mrs. Becker congratulation and well wishes and in the hope that the couple may live to celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary.

BECKMANN: Ida (Goeldner) MRS. IDA BECKMANN. Mrs. Ida Beckmann, widow of Emil Beckmann, who died eight years ago in Vancouver, Washington, where the Beckmann family then lived, was born in Centerville, Manitowoc county, Wisconsin, April 9, 1855, and has been a resident of Idaho since 1892, with the exception of the time spent in Washington. Her maiden name was Ida Goeldner, and she is a daughter of Bernard and Caroline (Hassler) Goeldner, natives of Prussia, where they were married, coming to America from that country about 1840 and locating in Manitowoc county, Wisconsin. Some years later they removed to Kansas, where they remained to the end of their lives, their deaths occurring in Sedgwick county, that state. Mrs. Beckmann is the fourth in order of birth in a family of six children, consisting of three sons and three daughters, of whom three are living. They were Gustave, Amelia, William, Ida, Adolph, and Minnie. Mrs. Beckmann is the only daughter now living. Her two brothers, William and Adolph, reside in Sedgwick county, Kansas. When she had reached the age of fifteen, Mrs. Beckmann accompanied her parents on their removal from Wisconsin to Sedgwick county, Kansas, where she spent ten years of her early womanhood. The next year and a half was spent in Michigan, where she lived with a sister. She then went to Leadville, Colorado, to visit her brothers, who lived in that state at the time, and it was there she met her future husband, Emil Beckmann, and married him March 28, 1883. Emil Beckmann was born in Germany, November 2, 1851, and was educated in the schools of that country, where he continued to live up to the age of twenty one. About 1872 he emigrated to America and was engaged at various occupations in different parts of the country. At the time of his marriage he was conducting a hotel in Leadville, Colorado, and continued in that business for some years thereafter. Later he removed to New Castle, Colorado, where he also conducted a hotel and in 1892 removed to Boise, Idaho, where with the exception of four years spent in Vancouver, Washington, he continued to live. His death occurred in Vancouver eight years ago. Some time after taking up his residence in Boise, Mr. Beckmann carried on a grocery store but later he bought a ranch near Maple Grove school, and on this place the famiiy lived for several years. During the period of his residence in Ada county he bought and sold several tracts of land and lived on three different ranches, removing to the place where Mrs. Beckmann now lives in 1909. This holding consists of twenty acres of prime land, for which he paid three hundred dollars an acre, and it is now estimated to be worth upwards of five hundred dollars an acre. Mr. and Mrs. Beckmann had three children as follows: Florence, born May 16, 1886, now the wife of John Smeed, of Caldwell; Arthur Martin, born on December 23, 1889; and Carl Edward, born on June 28, 1893. The younger son, Carl Edward, served in the American army during the World war for a period of eighteen months, and at the time the armistice was declared, he was in camp at Jacksonville, Florida. Mrs. Beckmann's long residence in and about Boise has gained her many friends, the circle of which increases as time goes on. She has always displayed an active and practical interest in the affairs of the community in which she has made her adopted home, and all movements calculated to improve the civic welfare have ever had her earnest and sympathetic support.

Accompanying the above notice came to this office an excellent wedding cake which all hands partook of and rendered thanks to the fair Jennie. But to say we were surprised and pleased at hearing of this arrangement would express little of what we felt. But it is no more than we might have expected. A friend said to this happy fellow, "Ed--win!" and he won: and, not to put too fine a point on it, he has steeled his heart to all the world beside and won a beautiful happy bride.
