. to "guy" the old maids as'. usual.
A male member of the family came
to their rescue and said there
were no such things any more as
old maids and suggested this com
mittee's name be. changed to "Ca-
i reer Women"- which met with ap
proval. As always there were a few
who had not attended in twen'ty,
thirty and thirty-five years, and as
usual there were those Who had
come a great distance. Mrs.
(ieorge Bidwell Sloan, a new mem
ber of the family since last meet-
ing cainc from Wyoming, Mary
Robinson Daniels and daughter,
J lope, from New York City; Mrs.
J-'loy Siler English from Tennes
see brought three daughters and
their 'three ' husbands who had
joined 'the family since, last meet
. ing. The very, very young daugh-.
ters of Mr. and Mrs. Dick Jones
and Mr. and Mrs. Tlios. porter,
Jr were presented to the family.
They gave . us a cool look from
their clear blue eyes as if to say:
"It will take more -than this group
of relatives to make an impres
sion on us.'
Carrie Sloan Crawford was not
able to attend, this meeting an
she and her hundred individual
frosted .sponge cakes were missed
lor the first tune in many years
The wonder of. the meeting was,
that again we had Cousin Hattic
Moore with us at the age of 9b,
. who remembers the first meeting
89 years ago! At first she an
her husband, Capt. ".Irish . Bill
Moore rode from Clay county
horse back. Then she came with
a baby , in front on the saddle.

,.. hind. After awhile both had
. child before and 'behind 'them on
saddles. Then it took a top bug
. gy and later a covered wagon, the
journey taking day.s and night
over bad- roads. '
G. Lyle Jones of Ashevillc pre
sented Cousin Hattie with some
tokens of esteem from the family
which she received with a smile
. and bright brown eyes.
- "Uncle" Enilas Siler, former slave
. of Jesse R. Siler, was present and
was asked to make a speech. He
.said: ."1 am no orator, but I am
...proud to belong to the good name
of Siler. Don't ever stop having
'..these meetings so the young onrt
. will try to live up to the name.'
Mrs. Carl Slagle invited the
meeting 'for next year. This gives
.j-the family the opportunity to play
the same trick on "Carl and Lou
ise" that was. used on "Maude and
: . Gilmer" last year. The meeting
and all arrangements were so per
fect the family decided that we
had met with Maude, that time, a
descendant of a sister, Esther Low-
ery, and that this year we would
just return and, meet with Gilmer,
a descendant of William Siler.
"Louise'' is a descendant of Wil
. liam Siler, so the year after next
we tan jnst go back and meet
with "Carl," a Jacob Siler de
