Mr. and Mrs. E (Edwin).J. Holt of Fowlerville will be the guests of their children for Christmas dinner on the occasion of their 60th wedding anniversary.
The wedding of Miss Ada Van Patten and Mr. E.J. Holt was solemnized on Christmas Day in the year 1880, at the home of the bride's parents in Marion township.
Mr. and Mrs. Holt have made their home in Fowlerville for the past 44 years, Mr. Holt having been in business for many years and has also been employed as street commissioner for some time.
Their children, who will help celebrate the happy occasion, are Ray of Howell, Roy of Fowlerville, Clyde of Detroit, and Stella Greenaway of South Bend, Inc., and their families.
Following the dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Holt will be home for the rest of the afternoon and evening. They also have four grandchildren and one great grandchild.
The community extends its congratulations and best wishes for many years of continued happiness in their wedded life.
Fowlerville is very lucky to have had this family living and working in the village. At one point, two men with cameras took numerous early 1900 pictures of buildings, churches, houses, and even the 1909 tornado aftermath, and labeled each photograph with "Holt & Hart" and catalog numbers. Many of these pictures can be found in The Fowlerville Chronicles as so many were made into postcards and are stored in our historical collection.
