Evening Post, 23 August 1916 - Mr and Mrs Krieg who are very old residents of Havelock, Marlborough, recently celebrated their golden wedding at their residence, when a large number of family members and friends were present. Mr and Mrs Krieg were married in 1866 and arrived at Wellington in 1867, and finally settled in Havelock, early in the 'seventies, where they have resided ever since. Mr and Mrs Krieg's family consisted of five daughters and one son, all married, there being twenty-four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
The old couple are in excellent health.
The weather was beautiful for the occasion of the celebration and there were about thirty guests present, all old friends of the family.
The rooms were decorated with red, white, and blue, and the tables with golden-coloured flowers, the flags of the Allies holding a prominent position in the centre of the table. There were two wedding cakes; one was given by their grandson, Archie Cooper, and the other was brought from Australia.
The Rev Mr Heron kindly officiated, giving a short address, and making reference to the high esteem in which Mr and Mrs Krieg were held by the community. Then he made the presentations, which were in the form of two beautifully bound combined church prayer-books and a silver cake dish, suitably inscribed, form the parishioners, and a purse of sovereigns from the family, also many other gifts.
Mr Gorrie proposed the health of the happy couple and family, the Rev Mr Heron proposed the health of the King, and Mrs Sharp (youngest daughter) responded on behalf of the parents and family.
The occasion ended with the singing of the doxology and the National Anthem.
The surviving children are:
Mrs Jordan, Wellington
Mrs Le Tacon, Sydney
Mrs Cooper, Upper Hutt
Mr Krieg, Wellington
Mrs Sharp, Sydney

BETHANY, South Australia

Bethanien and later Bethany, 2km from Tanunda in the Barossa Valley, was established by a group of Lutheran migrants who arrived with Pastor Gotthard Daniel Frietzsche in 1841. Most of these 270 immigrants had come from Posen and Silesia. In 1842 nearly a hundred of this group of migrants were joined by other Lutherans, already living at Hahndorf, to establish the first village in the Barossa Valley on land the local Aborigines referred to as Taninda. About 2080 acres were leased, and later bought, from George Fife Angas to start their new venture, Bethany
