Marie Strelesky Surprise Party

I was sleuthing through Google Newspaper Archives, news.google.com/newspapers/ when I found this article published in the Telegraph Herald (Dubuque, IA) regarding a surprise party for my great-grandfather’s sister Marie Strelesky.  It was published on Sunday, February 18, 1906, page 2.
