As historian, it is my plan to share the many obituaries, newspaper clippings and images that will help others find that one missing piece to their family history. These posts come from old scrapbooks and will include Oxford, Greene, McDonough, Guilford, Smithville, Coventry, New Berlin and Norwich. I am just getting started.

MRS. JANE MOWRY A Surprise Visit
Eleven friends of Mrs. Jane Mowry gathered at her daughter's, Mrs. J. Edgar Brown's, on Thursday morning, the occasion being Mrs. Mowry's 65th birthday.
It was intended for a surprise, but she would not be surprised and declared she was just getting ready for company. At one o'clock they were invited to the dining room. The color scheme was pink and white, and every one did justice to the ample repast that was served.
The combined ages of the twelve at the table was 843 years. After dinner, the guest showered Mrs. Mowry with many pretty gifts, and after a few hours of social intercourse, left for home wishing Mrs. Mowry many happy returns of the day.
