Family Reunion.
Wikle Family Assembles at Old Home Recently.

A reunion of the Wikle family, of this city, took place at the old home, on Erwin street, one day recently.

It was the occasion of the eighty-fifth birthday of the aged father, Judge Jesse R. Wikle.  Judge Wikle is now in good health and exceedingly active for one of his years, being able to take little journeys to town whenever he chooses and do little things about the home that usually tax the physical powers. Judge Wikle is one of Cartersville’s most staunch and respected citizens.  He has been postmaster of Cartersville and has held other places of trust in the community.  He was perhaps the first editor in the county, having edited the Cassville Standard, before the civil war.  His friends wish him many more years and those full of happiness.

A family dinner was one of the features of the reunion.  Every immediate member of the family was present.  There were seven children, six sons and one daughter, namely, Col. J. H. Wikle, Messrs. I. F. and W. H. Wikle, of this city; Dr. Jesse Wikle, of Anniston, Ala.; Col. Douglas Wikle of Nashville, Tenn., Mr. C. A. Wikle, of Atlanta, and Miss Mamie Wikle, of this city.

The occasion was a joyous one for all present.
