COIL-BISHOP ANNUAL REUNION
Sunday Sept. 16, 1928 was a beautiful Autumn day and was greatly

and friends gathered at the home of Mrs. Jamie Bishop in the Annual Bishop -
Coil Reunion and to celebrate the birthdays of Mrs. Jamie Bishop and Master
Richard Aronld of that vicinity. Also Mrs. John Bishop of San Antonio, Texas
who is visiting here. The long tables were spread under the large shade trees
on the lawn and the tables reached almost half the length of the large yard
making a very large table but it was filled so that scarcly another dish of
food could have been put on it. Rev. Larsen was present and offered pray
after which each one did justice to this wonderful dinner. The afternoon was
