Wedding Wednesday - Victor and Mary Laurent

Victor and Mary's Wedding

Victor and Mary's 50th anniversary

Like I said on Sunday, I knew I had a picture/clipping of their anniversary somewhere!

"Married 50 Years - Mr. and Mrs. Victor Laurent [sic] of Tonet, Kewaunee County, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary today.  They were married in St. Martin's Catholic Church at Tonet, and have spent their entire married life in the community on the Laurent [sic] homestead farm.  They have three children, ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Unfortunately the clipping doesn't have a date on it, so I still can't confirm whether Victor and Mary Laurent nee Dart were married in 1905 or 1906.  Luckily, I'll be back in Wisconsin shortly and will be looking into this!  Still, 1905...1906...I'm more impressed with the 50 years!


  1. I'm glad you found the picture. I love the contrast. You've given me an idea -- I have an original wedding picture of an aunt and a picture from their 50th wedding anniversary. I'll have to dig them up.

  2. You've got me intrigued, Kathy! I look forward to seeing what you'll be doing!

  3. What a difference 50 years makes. They look happier than at their wedding! Mary sure is a cutie.
