Ray and Marilyn Rowley Jaeger arrived in Salt Lake City, April 16, 1958 from Oceanside, California on a short leave. They returned to O’side on May 3. Ray is in the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, California.

Lorenzo D. (Ren) Rowley, of Fillmore was a visitor at Lucy M. Rowley’s home in Salt Lake City on May 2, 1958. Uncle Ren, as we called him, lived with us in Mt. Home for a short time, leaving there in 1917, after serving time in the Army. This visit is the first we have seen of him since then. He enjoyed visiting with him.

May 2, 1958, Smoot and Blancye Rowley of Bynum, Montana arrived at Mt. Home. They came to Utah to attend the funeral services of a friend, Lee Jesson of Altonah, Utah. May 3, Smoot, Blanche, Edwin, and mother and others went to Mt. Home where the services were held. They returned home the same evening.

Before leaving Mt. Home they went out to the old home where we lived from 1910 to 1953. Mother moved to Salt Lake leaving the house and buildings locked up. They were in bad shape, partially wrecked by vandals and animals. They did get a few final pictures and things before leaving for Salt Lake. They got here at midnight. By 10 p.m., other folks out there had phoned that the house and all had burned to the ground at about 8 p.m. We all felt very badly about it, and mother was especially upset. It is not know just how the fire started.

Lorin and Lucy Rowley Wilcox left St. Helena, California to visit her son Harry Scott and family in Bynum, Montana. They arrived in Salt Lake on June 23, to visit her mother before going on to Fillmore for the family reunion.

Mother and I drove to Fillmore early Saturday morning, June 28, to attend the reunion. We enjoyed it very much. We enjoyed meeting all the fine people there. We regretted having to leave early to come back home. Ralph came from Duchesne. There were Ralph, Lucy, Mother and Myself of our family there. Lorin and Lucy left early in the afternoon to go on to their home in St. Helena, California. They arrived home late Sunday evening. They were all okay.

I was very much satisfied with the progress of the family tree. With one small exception, my part of the tree was complete. All mine and my family group sheets are in. all you other folks, my brothers and sister, please try to get your family sheets in, so by the reunion time next year we will have the tree growing good.

Raymond and Marilyn Jen or were home on leave again. They arrived in Salt Lake July 6th. Ray reported back to Camp Pendleton on August 5, 1958. Their new address is: 2426 Jefferson, Carlsbad, California

As Mrs. More returned home she came by the old homerance in Sunnymead for a short visit with me. I came here as a bride in 1898, and my son was born here, so it is home too, for all of them, even for the great-grandchildren.

SECRETARY:

Mary Bradley reports our financial standing.

Lorenzo Day Rowley being the only surviving son of Ralph Nephi Rowley and Mary Day, gave a short talk. There were also some artificial flowers given to the oldest persons present: Mrs. Emma Chesely Rowley of Fillmore, wife of the late George Rowley; Mrs. Lucy Golding Rowley, of Salt Lake City, wife of the late John T. Rowley Jr.; Emily R. Wade of Fillmore, daughter of James Rowley and Mary Day; Lorenzo Rowley, of Fillmore, youngest son of Ralph Nephi Rowley and Mary Day; and Chester Lyman of Duchesne, Utah, oldest son of Elizabeth Ann Rowley and Ira D. Lyman.

There were some tokens of appreciation given to those who spent so many hours preparing and drawing the family trees which were shown at the reunion. There some small books given to Claude and Angie Warner, and Delane and Iris Lambertsen. We surely appreciate their work and sacrifice. The following family members traveled quite a distance to be with us at the reunion;

Mr. and Mrs. Loren (Lucy Rowley)
Wilcox, St. Helena, California

Mr. and Mrs. Wm. ? (Verda Day)
Hotchkiss, Congress, Arizona.

To these we presented an artificial rose in appreciation of their efforts to be with us.

After this a group took off for a tour of sites and old places of interest to the families. Among them were: Lorenzo D. Rowley, Ralph Nephi Rolwey, Loren Paul Rowley, Loren and Lucy ? Wilcox, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Lymanm Fern Starley, Manual and Luella Downard and Lillian A, Rowley.

While many of the others went over and discussed their family records and others visited the State House. Some went out to the cemetery and saw the graves of Ralph Nephi Rowley and James Rowley, and many others of the family that were buried there. We had a very enjoyable day.

In the evening, Chester Lyman showed some beautiful slides he had taken throughout the west of outstanding scenes and things of interest to everyone.

Sylvester Adams, an old friend of the family in the late 1800’s spoke to us of his association with the family and of his respect for them. He told how Jane Paul Rowley’s children had to walk or ride through their yard to go to school and of his acquaintance with John T. Rowley, Ralph Nephi Rowley, and Hugh Thompson Rowley and Royal J. Rowley and the rest of the family. He related experiences with them that were very interesting to those present.

We had a very enjoyable time – one that many of us will long remember.

EDITORIAL:

(In place of our Editorial we are publishing the Reunion Report)

Our Reunion, as announced was held at Fillmore, Utah, on June 23, 1958. There were three family trees exhibited. One for the James Rowley families drawn by Claude and Angie Warner and one of the Ralph Nephi Rowley families drawn by Iris Lyman Lambertsen, and the tree that was drawn for our first family reunion in 1956 by Paul Cline. They tell quite a story of what has been done in the past two years in research of our collateral lives. Many branches are compete  and up to date, which is really an inspiration to many of us, of what can be done. We had nearly one hundred persons present throughout the day.

The day was started off with meetings. At noon we all enjoyed a fine Pot Luck dinner, after which there was a short program. The Wade girls of Fillmore gave a musical number, that was very fine, and Mrs. Lambertsen gave a short reading that was very good. We then heard reports from the committee heads, they are as follow.
