ECCLESTON FAMILY REUNION AT GLASCO
Sixty Were Present Including a Number from Here.
The descendants of the late Avery N. Eccleston and wife, Sally B. Ray, of North Stonington, held their ninth annual reunion with Mr. and Mrs. Nathan W. Eccleston at Glasgo, Tuesday.
Sixty were present, coming from Boston, Hartford, Willimantic, Jewett City, Norwich, Yantle, Bean Hill, Niantic, Mystic, Stonington, North Stonington and other places.
Death has entered th circle the past year and taken a daughter, Mrs. Oliver B. Miller, the eldest of the nine children who lived to grow up. Only three of the children are now living. Nathan W. Eccleston of Glasgo, with whom the reunion was held, John D. of Jewett City and Herman Clinton of North Stonington, all of whom with their wives were in attendance, the rest of the number being composed of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their families.
The day was spent in happy manner. The dinner took the form of a family picnic and the good things were packed on the table until it fairly groaned under the weight. The chicken and baked beans, which the host and hostess had prepared was a dish to be remembered. An abundance of candy and watermelon was furnished by two who stood treat for the crowd.
Games were played by the young people and songs, both sacred and sentimental, were sung. Three cheers and a vote of thanks were given Mr. and Mrs. Eccleston with an unanimous vote to meet at the same place next year the last Tuesday in August, providing God is willing.
At most reunions a literary programme is prepared for the occasion, but theis family meets for the express purpose of having a day to visit with each other and there is no time for anything of that kind, judging by the busy hum of voices heard on all sides, and the swiftly passing hours.
