Friendship scrapbook 4 Aug 1910 Irish reunion

A family of Seventh Day Baptists consisting of seven brothers and sisters of mature age and holding a seven day reunion would be considered a rarity in almost any locality. The readers of the Register will be especially interested in the fact that at the home of Myron O. Irish of Friendship such a reunion came to a close Sunday noon July 31st the west bound train bearing away four of the sisters who had come from four distant states to share with their two brothers and one other sister living in NY state the first complete reunion of the Irish family in 4 years.

Mrs. Mary Alford of Eldred,Pa, Mrs. Viola Carpenter of Bloomington Ind, Mrs

Flora Crandall of Farminton Conn and Mrs Albertine Slocum of Gueydan,La were

the four sisters who went away by train and later in the day Mr Irish of Friendship drove to West Genesse to convey to her home another sister Mrs Martha Burdick and brother Wardner Irish of Hornell.So from 5 different states had assemled these 7 brothers and sisters one of whom said in reply to a question Our father was twice married the four children of the first wife have all died but one. This one is in California. Our mother never lost a child and all are here today. If all our fathers children grandchildren and great grandchilden were here today there would be over 50 of us together but these are too widely scattered to be assembled at one time and place.

The first 3 days of this Irish reunion had been at the home of Mrs Burdick who lives on a part of the farm where still stands the house in which the parents George and Mary Irish both deceased were married in 1845 and near where rest their remains the father having died in 1888 and the mother in 1889.George Irish was born in 1810 hence he would be just one hundred years old if

living. His second wife Mary Adams was the junior by 13 years. In the house where they were married their seven children were born and here all grew to manhood and womenhood.

To this old farm these brothers and sisters came, and after spending three days together there four more days were given to a continuation of the reunion at the home of Myron Irish of Friendship.One striking peculiarity of the statisics referred to at this family gathering is found in the fact that the oldest of the seven was born in 1846 and the youngest in 1864 the last two figures to these dates being the same in reverse order and the present ages of the entire seven are between 64 and 46.These days of the reunion were interspersed with visits made by relatives and other friends who came from Alfred,Belmont, Nile, Richburg, Friendship, and

Genesse to share in the gladness and rejoicing.If the songs that were sung the stories that were told the shouts of laughter and the general jubilee that were kept up for the happy seven days made the nearby residents unhappy we can only say sorry we annoyed you but we simply couldnt help it.No accident occurred the weather was perfect everyone came in a happy mood and went away more jubilant still.No truer word was ever spoken than the saying The Lord was every spoken than the saying The Lord has been good to all of us.
