Coffman Reunion

[Editor's note - This was a very difficult article to transcribe as the microfilm camera apparently vibrated.  The issue appears double printed, out of focus, and very heavy; so I apologize in advance for any inaccuracies.]

The Scranton Tribune-Republican  Thursday, August 18, 1910

    In spite of inclement weather, twenty-five of the descendants of Isaac and Nancy Coffman gathered for their annual reunion at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ansel Carpenter, of Marshbrook, on Wednesday, August 10.

    The hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter is well-known and it was very evident to their guests on Wednesday, who in turn made the old farmhouse ring in their appreciation of the hospitality.  Another thing which was equally as evident was the fact that there are no poor cooks in the family, and everyone seemed hungry enough to eat his or her share of the good things provided.  After dinner a program was rendered which was much enjoyed.  There has been one death in the family since last year, that of A. H. Ridgeway, of Marshbrook, which occurred at his late house in July.

  How we missed you, dear old Uncle,
  Your bright face and silvered hair,
  Missed you from your place among us,
  Yes, there was one vacant chair.

  Missed you, when our thoughts were happy,
  Missed your stories, all so gay;
  For they always helped to cheer us,
  As we trudged along life's way.

  Missed you when ever thoughts were sober,
  For it 'twas ere your constant prayer,
  That your loved ones all might meet you
  When the roll is called up there.

  Eighty years on earth you journeyed,
  And you did not live in vain;
  For the Christ, the blessed father,
  In your heart and life did reign.

  O, may we who knew and loved you,
  Learn the lessons which you taught,
  Of the loved One who died to save us
  And our sins on Calvary bought.

  Now that you have gone and left us,
  And we miss you on this day
  Of our annual reunion,
  We would each of us now say

  When our gatherings have ended,
  On this earth forever more,
  May we have a grand reunion
  With you on the other shore.

     Every one seemed unwilling to depart, but by 5:30 all had gone, happy in the anticipation of meeting on August 16, 1911 at the home of W. H. Robinson, of Clark's Green.
