60th Wedding Anniversary

Flora Couple Wed 60 Years.
R.A. Bork and Wife are Honored by Family and Friends.

The farm home of Mr. and Mrs. R.A. Bork of Flora was the scene of a very happy gathering
Sunday, January 24, 1932, when all of their children gathered there as a surprise to help
them celebrate their sixtieth wedding anniversary.

Grandpa and Grandma, as they are known to all their friends, were married in Germany
Jan. 26, 1872 where they made their home until 1884 when they decided to come to America
with their family of four children. They boarded the ship at Hamburg and started on their journey to America. After one and one-half days it was found the ship was leaking and they must return to Hamburg for repairs. This did not discourage them.

After a five days wait they again boarded the same ship and began the journey a second time,
which lasted 21 days. All this time they did not see anything but sky and water, the waves rolling completely over the ship at times. A number of the passengers were very ill. Two deaths occurred and the bodies were buried in the waters of the Atlantic ocean.

They arrived in New York after a very tiresome journey and hurried on to their new home at
West Side Iowa where they remained for seven years. They had a longing to try a new country
and again they started out with their family of seven children and the west was their destination.
Leaving west Side by train they came to LaGrande and from there on to their present home
at Flora by team and wagons, where they have made their home since the year 1891. They are
happy and contented, still living on the farm that they homesteaded.

All the children were home for the occasion. The dinner was brought in by them and was
a huge success. Mrs. Rena Bork brought the wedding cake. After the dinner everyone gathered in the sitting room and an hour or more was spent in singing hymns that everyone knew.  They were accompanied on the organ by Miss Bernice Conrad and the music was greatly enjoyed by all.

Thirty-three were present: Mrs. William Conrad and son Vernie of Joseph, Grandpa and
Grandma Bork, Mrs. C.F. Evans and daughters Hazel and Stella and son Arley, William Bork,
Fred Bork, Mr. and Mrs. R.G. Bork and two sons Marvin and Roy, Mr. and Mrs. Ira H. Bork and children, Ivan, Alma, Everett Raymond and little daughter Fay, Mr. and Mrs. A.L. Evans and two children, Billie and Wilda Irene, Miss Bernice Conrad and sister Loralene, Mrs. Amos Evans and three children, Rodney, Melvand Lawrence, Ralph Lindley, all of Flora; Mr. Foster of Camp 10, and Mrs. Lillie Evans and son Leo of Enterprise. On account of chores and bad roads some of the relatives were unable to attend. All returned to their homes the same evening after wishing Grandpa and Grandma many, many returns of the day-One who was there.
