GRAVELY REUNION !
(By Mrs. W. C. Gravely)
I The Gravely reunion, which war '
scheduled to take place at Rocky
Bottom, S. C., on September 29, oc- .
currred on this date and on schedule
Early Sunday morning Gravelys, '
Gravely connections and Gravely
friends began to arrive, hearty hand ;
clasps were observed, joyous greet- |
ings heard on every side, kinsfolks
met who had never met before, saw ]
many they had not seen for years
and happened up with many friends
of long ago, and had sometimes j
wondered if they would ever meet i
them again in this world.
All through the day untli late 1
afternoon folks kept coming, the |
same wonderous congeniality which
began so ewly in the morning con- 1
tinuing throughout the day. The
morning hours passed, a bounteous
spread was put on the tables in the
dinging rooms of the Rocky Bottom
club house (thanks to the gentlemen
in charge of the club house). Rev.
W. E. Rufty, pastor of the M. E.
church of Rosman and an invited
guest made impressive talks on
"Families," heartily endorsing fam
ily reunions and speaking of the
time when families of all names
should be just one great family.
Rev. J. P. Mason, of Brevard,
asked God's blessing on all present,
and gave thanks for the food pre
pared. For a time all seemed con
sent to just feast. Announcement
was made for a Gravely reunion to
(be at the same place next year, date
to be decided later. W. W. Gravely
(Sr. had honorary mention, he being
74 years old that day and the oldest
(living of the Gravely clan, for which
, the reunion was held.
All too soon the hours had
passed, declarations of a happy day
jwere being made, goodbyes were be
ing said, ars were speeding away
filled with tired but joyful folks (and
empty lunch boxes).
So ended the 1929 Gravely reunion.
It is estimated that between three
and four hundred people were
there, registration showing 240, and
many failed to register.
