Humeston New Era
Feb 3, 1915

Last Friday there was a family gathering at John Williams. Their daughter Mrs. McCloud and two children of Hampton, Kansas, were visiting her parents and two sisters at Lineville, Mrs. O. E. Bay and Mrs. J. L. Bay, and two brothers, Alfee and Samuel Williams, of Leroy and Mrs. R. A. Smith of Humeston. As Mrs. McCloud was going to leave for her home Saturday, several of her relatives gathered Friday to wish her good luck on her journey. Those present were: Ophy Coffey and family, Cress Coffey and family, Newt Coffey and family, Mrs. Malcena S Coffey and son Dick, Benjamin C. Coffey , wife and son John, Mrs. P. A. Robinson and son Herman, , and Alfee Williams and wife. Later in the evening James Abel and wife, Ira Porter and wife, and Ed Williams spent the evening with her. This is the first time Mrs. McCloud has visited Iowa for over ten years. On Saturday she started on her journey home and Alva Williams and wife accompanied her as far as Lineville where they will visit for a few days.
