Descendents of Samuel Eikenbary Very Pleasant Reunion

Mr. a

Sunday the pleasant

ful gathering when a number of the
relatives, all of whom were descen
dents of Samuel Kikenbarry. one of
the hardy pioneers of this county,
gathered to enjoy the day in each
other's company and the occasion
proved all that had been hoped for.
The event was hurriedly arrang
ed and it had not been possible to
get in touch with members of the
family residing at a distance. but
those who were able to attend en
joyed a day that will long be very
pleasantly remembered. Samuel Kik
enbary. the grandfather and gre..'
grandfather of the members of the
party, was one of the early settlers
of Cass county, comir.g here in 18.r.r(
teiand pre-empting a homestead two
miles south of Blattsmouth. and the
greater part of the family has been
reared to manhood and womanhood
in this community 'and become men
and women who have been strong
and courageous citizens. and who
have contributed to the Christian
upbuilding of the communities in
which they have lived.
The day was spent in visiting and
at a suitable hour a dainty and thor
oughly enjoyable buffet luncheon
was served that added to th pleas
ures of the members of the party.
Those who enjoyed the reunion
were Mrs. Martha Wiles and sons
and families; Joseph J. Johnson,
wife and son. Joe; Oscar Gapen, wite
and family; Winfield Swan and wife
of I'nion; C. M. Mover and wife, of
York. Nebraska; Mrs. Maude Eiken

Walter L. Thomas, for many years
a resident of Cass county, has just
returned to his home at Long Iteach.
California, after a tour from the
s horns of the l'acific to the east as
far as Illinois and while enroute to
the eastern slate Mr. Thomas pass
ed thiough this portion of Nebraska
and Fpent a short time here with
his relatives. Mr. Thomas has writ
ten a very interesting letter of his
trip to his cousins, Mr. and Mrs. Ed
die Todd, which is reproduced below:
Long Beach. Cal.. Sept. l.
Dear Kddie and Lizzie:
We got home the other dav and
was glad to get back to good o!u
(California again. We had some trip.
J". 021 miles, and without very much
trouble, a puncture and a few other
little things, that's all. and I am more
pleased with the Studebaker than
ever. We saw other cars stalled'
(and Fords had to be pushed thru!
creeks where the bridges had been
washed out since we came through
the rrrsfTime, and the Studebaker
j nver faltered, and was never stall-
led or helped out of those places. 1
jdon't begrudge the trip, for it was
the trip of my life, but 1 don't think
I would go over the same road un
til I know that something has been
done with the roads anyway. All
t lie dirt had been washed out in
some places in Arizona and New
Mexico and all we had to do was to!
climb the rocks that seemed every
minute would burst the tires or
break the springs but we made it
all right. We were sixteen days
coming home from Illinois, a day
longer than we were going. We got
in with some folks from Oklahoma
and we kept together until we got
very near home. It was some com
pany and seemed good to have them
with us when we were camping out
with the Indians and Mexicans, it
was 110 in the shade in the desert
the inhabitants said it was 120 !
the day before we went so we were;
not so bad off at that. We got up'
at " and kept up a steadv grind and
got through. The second day wa?!er relatives to
in a rain -torm. The last night i'
rained very hard f;ir over an hour
and I got cut of the car atter it had
finished and could find no mud on
my shoe? so we went on rejoicing
next morning and found very little
indication of rain (it was not Platte
bottom). I came nearer being stuck
there than any place on the trip.
but one consolation is that you can
raise good crops in the Platte bot
tom and can't on the desert.
The crops in Illinois are not as
good in small grain as Nebraska;
Missouri has some good corn and
small grain; Kansas no corn to
speak of, but small grain is good.
It seemed funny to see the oats in
Arizona and New Mexico in patches
as green as a gourd and being cut.
I suppose tor hay.
We did not go to Will Noxon's or
the Grand Canyon. All the informa
tion on the roads in Oklahoma v.e
could get was not favorable on ac
count of the heavy rains and sandy
places. They told me I could hardly
get through the dry creek bottoms
and I gave up the trip although I
would have liked to have paid them
a visit, and I suppose they will think
that I did not want to. but I was
always trying U get dope on the
roads down there since 1 left your
place till I got half way through
Kansas. We hope you will be with
us this winter for a nice visit.
Your cousin.
