From Raymond Eller, -344 South Serrano Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90030:

"The first formal reunion in my lifetime, (of the Harvey Eller family) that I know about, is the one held in 1925, in June I believe, in my hometown of Clay Center, Nebraska. My father's home, Jacob H. Eller, served as headquarters. There were no hotels nor motels in the town of a thousand people, so our dear relatives were put in neighbors homes. One group pitched a tent in our back yard without casualty. We took care of those we could at father's, and sister Merle Eller Rolly's houses.

"Some meetings were held in our front yard with the parch serving as a stage. The afternoon meetings were held in the Congregational Church. The major meal a+ the days were in the church basement, with food provided by ladies of the Church membership. There were 115 registered the second day, if I recall correctly. They came from North Carolina to California. I have not been able to find the list of those attending. Time has flitted and storage of decades often lose valued documents.

"Other reunions I have known of, but could not attend: Hedrick, Iowa in 1937; Ottumwa, Iowa in 1964; and Palo Alto, CA in 1965.

"I am in the seventh generation of George Michael Ellers clan and appear an page 239 a+ the Eller book by Hook.

"On the following two pages are photographs of (1) Harvey Eller (326kb) and (2) A photograph of the eight children of Harvey Eller (192kb) and Mary Caroline Vannoy Eller made during the family gathering for the funeral of Harvey in November, 1906. The identifications of the children were made by me in 1987."

ibid, pp.188-197, story of the removal of Harvey Eller and his family from Wilkes Co., NC to Iowa via covered wagon in 1852. This is a gripping story a+ courage, adherence to one's convictions, and adventure. The removal was prompted by the strong objections which Harvey Eller held for the slave and liquor traffic in North Carolina. The family consisted of Harvey, his wife, Mary Caroline Vannoy Eller and 8 children. "The oldest child of the family was William, barely ten years of age. Jesse the youngest, was a baby of only seven months."
