Interesting Event.
Reunion of the Matthews Family at Home of Mr. Carpenter.

A reunion of the Matthews family took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Carpenter, in Cherokee county, last Sunday, 20th instant, and was an interesting event.

Those of the family now living and present were: Mrs. Polly Rheinhardt, age 78; Mrs. Mincy Carpenter, age 77; Mr. Lewis B. Matthews, age 72; Mr. Joseph A. Matthews, age 70; Mrs. Caroline Smith, age 68.

Four septugenaries, another very close to being such, and all in good health was an evidence of vitality rarely shown in one family.

A splendid dinner was one of the features of the day.  May each of those present live to yet attend numerous like happy gatherings.
