Pioneers of Foster Will Hold Reunion

Picnic at Silver Grove Saturday

Pioneer citizens of Foster, Ky., will hold a reunion at Silver Grove, Ky., Saturday.  Persons who have been residents of that town during the past half a century will assemble and relate reminiscences.  Many who were companions during school days 50 years ago still reside in Foster.  Preparations are being made for a large crowd at Silver Grove Saturday, as children and other relatives of the pioneers will attend.

Israel Foster, after whom Foster's Landing was named, died recently at the age of 83 years.  He lived all of his life at Foster.  Mrs. Catherine Schoolfield, now passed 83 years, will attend the reunion and probably will be the oldest living citizen of Foster.  She has resided in the place almost her entire life.  Other pioneer citizens to take part in the exercises are Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lawson, Dr. J. D. Hannah, Edward Nieder, Foster Fite, William J. Jones, Mrs. M. J, Roberts, John Mohles, C. J. Holmes, Edward Houston, Charles E. Downing.  The families of the above named, many of whom reside in Newport, will be present.  Religious exercises will be conducted by Rev. John Kennedy or the Methodist church, South. Citizens were engaged Friday decorating Silver Grove in honor of the pioneers.
