1896 – About sundown I walked up town and went up to Burton’s. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry), Mrs. Burton and I walked down to Hyde’s Store. They were having a grand showing of their Christmas things. We went up to our class in Academy Hall. Someone came in and told me my sweetheart, May Grover, was outside and wanted to see me. I went out, talked to her for a while and then returned to the class. We went down to the store again and then over to the Excelsor. Mr. Burton joined us there and then we all went home to Burton and I spent the night there.

MORONI ROWLEY AND MARY MAXFIELD:
Reported by: Ralph A. and Francis Rowley
3814 No. 24th
Tacoma 7, Washington

Ralph is employed five days a week at the lumber company in Olympia, Washington. About a year and a half ago we bought some acreage just out of Olympia. It had basic improvements but was rundown. It had taken most of his spare time to improve it. We expect to sell our home here and build there.

Ralph is the son of Moroni Rowley and Mary Maxfield.

Richard Rowley, Ralph’s brother, has accepted a contract as principal of a high school in De Taer, Michigan.

Ralph’s son Richard is engaged to be married to Miss Dorothy Atkins. They have set no definite time for their wedding. It probably will not take place until after the holidays.

A letter from Clara Rowley O’Tolle informed us that her husband was in the hospital for surgery.
