Many Persons Gather at Somerset for Big Celebration
SOMERSET, June 4.– There was a happy family reunion at John A. Miller\’s Grand View home on north Franklin street, commencing on Saturday and lasting until yesterday, when the host and hostess, John A. Miller and Mary, his wife, enjoyed the unusual gratification of seeing all their children and grandchildren gathered into one large felicitating group.

Those present were:
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Walker and children, Perry and Alma, of Shade township
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Miller and children, Edward, Isaac, Clair, Albert, Melvin, Dayton and Margaret, of Johnstown
Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Miller and children, Raymond and Mary, of Johnstown
Mr. and Mrs. Lucian Miller and children, Alma, Ernest, Lester, Luella and Eugene, of Johnstown
Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Miller and children, Elda, Rosa, Alverda and Lillian, of Johnstown
Mr. and Mrs. James Wood and daughter, Miss Sarah, of Youngwood
Mr. and Mrs. Moxham Miller and children, Goldie, John and Dalton, of Somerset
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Combecker and children, Mabel and Olive, of Somerset
Besides the foregoing children and grandchildren there were present the following guests: Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah Combecker of Somerset and Mr. and Mrs. Madison Brant of Berlin.

It was the first reunion of this branch of the great Miller family, and host and hostess are correspondingly elated over its success. Mr. Miller removed to Somerset from Shade township six years ago. He is a veteran of the civil war and his next reunion will be at Gettysburg on July 1, 2, and 3.

Moxham Miller, who resides in Somerset, was the first child born in Moxham, Johnstown; hence his name.
