Brady SILERS FROM 'ALL OVER' were here last week (or the 100 th reunion of the descendants of Weimar Siler. Nearly a score of states ? from Texas to Idaho, and from Florida to New York ? and one foreign country were represented by the approximately 300 persons in attendance. Pictured above are some of those from the greatest distances. Seated, left to right, are Miss Anniewill Siler, of New York City, Mrs. Kate Robinson Hobart, of San Diego, Calif., and Mrs. James McAlister, of Mapelwood, N. J. Standing are Capt. William W. Siler, of the V. S., Air Force, who is stationed at Mobile, Ala., but returned from a flight to Africa just in time to attend the reunion; Francis M. Tessier, of Baton Rouge, La., Mrs. Lindesay Parrott, (the former Miss Marion Moore), of Tokyo, Japan, Michael D'Onofrio, of Wantagh, Long Island, N. Y., Mrs. O'Onofiro (the former Miss Daisy Siler), Mr. McAlister, Miss Hope Daniels, of New York City, and Miss Eleanor Sloan, of Lewiston, Ida. No 1 the suggestion of a young girl, and that the distance (about six miles) "up the creek" (Car toogechaye) was so great in that day that some of those from Franklin made the trip, on horseback, the day before. The reminiscing continued during a bountiful picnic dinner, spread on outdoor tables built in the shade of a big maple tree. The blessing was said by the Rev. Robert L. Jerome, of Elizabeth City. Gracing the older people's table was a huge, 100th year cake, brought from Knoxville by Mrs. Floy Siler England. In the afternoon, the formal meeting was conducted, with Chairman Carl S. Slagle presid ing, and W. N. Sloan serving as secretary. The meeting was opened and closed with the hymns that are traditional at "family meet ings", "Best Be The Tie That Binds" and "God Be With You Till We Meet Again". The invo cation, pronounced by the Rev. A. Rufus Morgan, was an orig inal poem: Another year! And we are come Our contacts to renew. We come From simple ways And boast but this: Our honest toil, Our blessed homes, Our gratitude For bold adventure Into this good land Of Siler brothers In years gone by. We offer now Our thanks to God For blessings undeserved; And offer, too, For years to come Our faith and service, That in our fellowship Our lives may be But instruments In bringing in God's reign Of peace, and joy, and love. Following the reading of the minutes, greetings ? sent by tel egram, letter, and word-of mouth ? from absent members were heard. Mrs, Carl S. Slagle, head of the memoirs committee, read brief sketches of members of the family connection who had died during the past year ? Miss Katherine A. Ervin, of Green ville, S. C., Mrs. T. H. Weaver, of Weaverville, Mrs. Myra Len oir Burdette, of Lenoir City, City, Tenn., C. C. Daniels, of New York City, and G. L. Jones, of Asheviile. ~~ Mrs. Joe Setser made the re port of the outlook committee accounts of births, graduations, marriages, and other family events of the year. Mrs. Myra Slagle Waldroop, the registrar, reported a total registration of 257 ? 245 relatives and 12 visitors ? and pointed out that a considerable number had not registered. Of the 245 kin present, only 18 bear the Siler name, Mrs. Waldroop reported. Most of the session was de voted to discussion of an am bitious project to publish a 200 page history of the family. Mrs. T. W. Porter, who has been working on the history for many years, has completed the manu script, and W. N. Sloan, chair man of a committee named to devise ways and means to fi nance It, reported. The cost will be between $1500 and $1800, he said, de pending on the number of books printed, and copies will retail for about $3. He suggested the only way a book of this sort could be pub lished was by raising the money in advance, and that the most practical way to do that was by members of the family under writing the cost, and being re imbursed as copies of the book are sold. Approximately two-thirds of the total was underwritten at the meeting. In addition, some $50 in cash was raised in sub scriptions for individual copies of the book. Miss Laura M. Jones reported for a committee that is seek ing records of members of the family who have served in World Wars 1 and 2, and asked that information on each serv iceman be forwarded to her, so that a complete record can be compiled. Short talks were made by J. R. (Dick) Sloan, of PelhairC Ga., the Rev. J. H. Brendall, Jr., of Kings Mountain, Bernard Elias, of Asheville, and others.

Barr, and Miss Lucy Morgan, to hold next year's session at the old Albert Siler home, on Cartooge chaye, which they recently bought. The Rev. F. O.
