Family Reunion.

Interesting Gathering of the Hill Family After Years of Separation.

On July 14 th there was a pleasant and happy reunion of the sisters and brothers of the Adam Hill family, raised in this county, above old Cassville, but scattered to the four winds of the union. As time passed and many changes in their various lives caused them to be settled at different places it was not their happy lot that they should see each other in a body and behold the mark of time on their careworn faces and the certain indications of age on their silver-striped heads, until the joyous bringing together of this family for the first time in over 20 years, at the residence of Mrs. Z. W. Jackson. One of the sisters, Mrs. Matilda Schuler, had not visited the hills of Georgia in over 10 years, her home now being in Arkansas, and the brother, G. W. Hill, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, accompanied by his wife, who was raised in Walker county, Ga., and their interesting little grandson. The other two sisters, still of this county, Mrs. Jane Gilreath and Mrs. Harriet Venable, constitute the party of glad hearts and bright and happy faces.

While God in His wise providence has laid the hand of affliction and sorrow upon them in making three out of the five widows, yet He has blessed them that there has not been a death in this family in 27 years.

They have been spared to a ripe old age, varying from 74 to 61 years of age. Though small of stature, three of them tip the beam at the same notch, 102 ½ pounds. Part of them will return soon to their homes in the west.
