The September 6, 1928 Appleton Post Crescent ran an article about the Konrad's 50th wedding anniversary celebration. They were married in 1878 in Appleton. A photo with a caption appeared in the paper for their 54th anniversary on September 6, 1932, but, as the caption said, "There was no celebration of the event."
