Family Reunion.

Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Conyers Attend Gathering of Newton Family.

Madison Madisonian.

One of the happiest and no doubt the most pleasant occasions of a lifetime to those present was the reunion of the family of Dr. William H. and Mrs. M. K. Newton, who formerly resided at the present home of Hon. John T. Newton, ten miles from Madison, but moved to Athens in 1870 and later to Maysville, Ga., where five years ago Dr. Newton died, honored and beloved by all who knew him. Last November Mrs. Newton and family moved back to Madison, where as Miss Walker, daughter of Mr. Edmund Walker, she was well known in her younger days.

This reunion took place at the homes of Messrs. E. L. and J. T. Newton last Saturday and Sunday, and was a joyous season to all present. May they have many more such meetings in coming years; and in the language of old Rip, “May they all live long and prosper.”

Those present were Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Newton and son, Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Newton and five children, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Conyers and five children of Cartersville; Mr. James T. Newton and two children, of Washington, D. C.; Mr. Steele and daughter of Rome; Miss Lucy Newton, of this city, and last, but not least, the proud mother of all Mrs. N. K. Newton, of this place. Full of years and usefulness, she enjoys the happy reflection consequent to a well spent life, and rejoices in the hope of a glorious hereafter.

In all there were twenty four present, one daughter, Mrs. Steele, and several grandchildren being absent.
