I have been having trouble finding the death record or
obituary for Frank L. Kersten and his wife Ida. They
were still alive and he was is his 70's in the 1940
census. Could anyone help me with this? Can't find him
in Find A Grave either, so don't know where he was buried.
He was born and raised in Chilton. Thanks! Theresa Kersten

The ceremony took place at the
Roman Catholic church in Grand Rapids
at nine o'clock ir. the forenoon,

The bride was attended by Miss

Special invitations had been extended
to former Calumet county

with both the bride and groom during
their residence in Chilton. Among

0. T. Hougen, Dr. and Mrs. R. H.
Sweetman, Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Wipperman,
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Vincent
and Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Paulus.
Otherwise the puests were restricted
to relatives of the bride and groom.
The marriage ceremony was followed
by a reception and wedding
feast at the home of the bride's
parents. The home was beautifully
decorated with smilax, roses and
carnations and the repast was
all that could be desired.
The groom is the second son of

who at one time, on account of his
prominence in the democratic party,
was nominated for state treasurer on
the democratic ticket. Frank L. Kersten

The bridal party took their departre on the
2:40 train over the G. B. &
V. R. R. Their immediate destiuaion
was purposely shrouded in mystery,
in order that no memento of their
recent union might follow them. It
vas given out, however, that they
would be "at home" at Milwaukee
after June 1st.

Thank you both so much! I feel like I just struck
gold. I'll add this to my accumulating information
for them. Sadly, Margaret only lived three or four
years after their marriage. I'm most grateful for
your help.
