Mr. and Mrs. E. L. William entertained with a family dinner party last
Sunday in honor of their father, Mr. B. Pearson of Auburn Wash. The
guest was all of Mr. Pearson's family. One son C. L. Pearson is in
Europe with Canadian troops and two grandchildren, Mrs. W. A. Buettner
of Odebolt, Iowa, and Mr. C. P. Christopher of Chicago could not make
it. The rest of the family that made it was Mrs. Lizzie Stratton and two
children, Miss Avis and Roscoe of Odebolt, Iowa., Mr. and Mrs. B. L.
Pearson, Miss Blanche and Miss Gladys Pearson all of Brookings, S. D.,
Mrs. A. B. Christopher, Miss Dorthea, Floy, Lois and little Bart Pearson
Christopher of Kansas City, Mo., Mr. A. E. Pearson of Emerado, N. D.,
Mrs. Maroe Simpson, a sister of Mr. Pearson of Grinnell, Iowa, and a
nephew of Mr. W. G. Pearson and wife of Hinton, Iowa. The reunion was an
unusually happy one as the family was last together in 1892. Mrs.
Christopher met her brother Arthur for the time in 16 years when he was
a boy at school.
