Family Reunion.
There was a reunion of the Wischmeyer family several weeks ago.  A dinner was enjoyed at the home of Mr. W. T. Bell in this city and then all went out and held a family reunion at the old home, Miller’s chapel.

There were present Mr. and Mrs. William Christlieb, Messrs. Fred, Walter, John and Willie Wischmyer, of Fort Worth, Texas, besides Mr. and Mrs. W T. Bell.

That Family Reunion.
A Friend Tells of Delightful Day Spent by the Wischmeyers.

A more pleasant gathering than the reunion of the Wischmeyer family has not been in old Bartow.

The family met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Bell the 6th instant.  After a day’s rest they went out to the Wischmeyer homestead, about nine miles from the city. There they were met by quite a number of old friends with dinner served under the spreading oaks that surrounds the home.

Our hearts thrilled with happiness as we once more clasped the hand of the father and the six children and bid them welcome to their old home.  Bartow hasn’t a family that it is prouder of than the Wischmeyer family.

Mr. Wischmeyer with his family settled here thirty years ago.  His wife a sweet pure woman went to her reward ten years ago.  Her life spent with us is an evergreen in our memory.

A father who has six children can be a proud father.  Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Bell, of your city, with whom the father makes his home, are the only ones near the homestead.  Others are: Mr. and Mrs. Christlieb and three daughters, Lilly May, Elizabeth and Lorene, reside in Jonesboro, Alabama, Mr. Fred Wischmeyer, of Atlanta; J. W. and W. T. Wischmeyer, of Ft. Worth, Tex., and Mr. August Wischmeyer, of Birmingham, Ala.  All of which are holding responsible positions.

The family hope to have these annual reunions every year.  Always know honorable father, noble sons and pure sweet daughters, your old friends and neighbors will always bid you welcome.

Mrs. S. E. Bell, of your city, accompanied the family to our midst.  She is a mother who we call blessed.  To know her is to love her.

A Friend of the Family.
