Vermilyea, wife of C. E. Vermilyea was also present. The family all live in the city, excepting R. B. Vermilyea, who is here from West Virginia visiting his mother, sister and brothers. The group partook of a fine supper served under the trees on the lawn where all enjoyed the cool fresh evening air. After supper photographs of the family group were taken. Late in the evening all retired from the gathering which will long be remembered by those in attendance.
