North Vernon Republican      September 26, 1912

Held At Residence of Charles D. Deputy, Commiskey, Indiana

September 15, 1912

    At the suggestion of numerous members of the family, it was decided to hold a reunion of the Deputy family on September 15th, and owing to the convenience of access of the residence of Charles D. Deputy who resides near Commiskey, it was decided to hold it there. Announcement of the meeting was sent as far as possible to the relatives scattered in many parts of the country and the interest and enthusiasm was indeed surprising. By the noon hour more than 100 of the relatives and friends had assembled and a most pleasant day was spent together. Many of them had not met for many years and to them it was a great treat to spend a day with old time relatives and friends. Arrangements had been made to serve dinner in a grove near the residence but inclement weather made it necessary to serve the meal in the residence.
    An elegant meal had been prepared and as usual this was by no means the least attractive feature of the event. The Deputys are good feeders and they did ample justice to the feast prepared for them. Mrs. C.D. Deputy deserves special mention for her efforts to make the visitors have a day long to be remembered and they were a unit in voting the most pleasant day of the season.
