October 12 1894/1994

Harford - The house to which Milborn Oakley brought his bride, Nancy Carpenter, the day after their marriage. May 27, 1826, has been taken down; and the ground will soon show no sign of the home that once accepted it. While the old homestead had been much improved by the removal, still the children regret the loss of an old landmark.

Silver Lake - The gathering of the Hill family was held Sept 12th at the home of Mrs. Alice Hill Rogers. Over 50 present. The oldest member was Mrs. Ansel Hill, aged 76, and the youngest Baby Rogers aged 3 weeks. Mrs. Hill’s great-grandchild, Mrs. Michael Hill, who is eighty-six, did not attend on account of indisposition.

Franklin Forks - The heavy rain of Wednesday last set the creeks raging; overflowed the banks and have made the roads very rough. Down below the Alliance store it looked like a lake. There was no school this Wednesday; the creeks were so high could not get to the schoolhouse.

West Auburn - Loads of buckwheat pass through the village, en route for Tuscarora Lake Mills.

Jackson - Rev. D.B. Wilson, of Jackson, delivered an address at the temperance meeting last Sunday evening, in Gibson. Mrs. Wilson was also present and favored the audience with choice selections in song.
