SOCIETY - Reed-Wallace Reunion - Claysville, Aug. 25 --
The descendants of William Reed and Robert Wallace today met at the home
of Jacob Bane and held their sixth annual reunion. About 100 members of
the two families were present and sat down to the dinner which was
served at noon. Although no formal program was carried out, a most
enjoyable day was spent in social fashion. The Reed and Wallace families
originally came from the North of Ireland and settled in 1803 in Buffalo
township where they engaged in farming. Although their descendants have
scattered to other parts of the country, there are many representatives
of the two families still living in this immediate region. The next
reunion of the two connections will be held at Blayney's grove, near
Roney's Point, W. Va. Guests present yesterday from a distance were Miss
Nannie Reed, of Enterprise, Kan.; Mrs. William Reed and daughter, Mrs.
Graham, of Pittsburg [sic].
