BELCHER, COMPTON FAMILY REUNION ON NEXT SUNDAY
The pioneer Belcher and Compton families of Tazewell County are planning a reunion next Sunday at Falls Mills. The reunion will be held at the Macedonia Church, the spot being near the lands once owned by the Belchers and B.P. Compton. A part of the Compton farm was purchased by the Norfolk and Western Railroad and is now the dam site. Both the Belchers and Comptons are trail blazers and belong to that rugged pioneer who established our civilization here. Mrs. H.B. Compton, mother of the well-known school teacher, is chairman of the committee on arrangements. Come and bring your basket. Next Sunday, August 30.
