I found the following item in the Aug. 20, 1920 newspaper of Gambier, OH:
Sellers Family Holds Reunion
The twenty-third annual reunion of the Sellerrs family was held Saturday at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Sellers near Gambier. About fifty persons
were present. At noon a bounteous dinner was served, after which a very
interesting program, which consisted of music and readings, was enjoyed by
I wonder if there are records of these reunions?

Subject: Grandma's Clippings #5
The following are a few newspaper clippings from my grandmother's scrapbooks.
While no date is on these, the clippings are from 1900-1920's. Grandma cut them
from Knox County newspapers. She was Mabel Mahla Frazier. Unless otherwise
noted, people listed as "from this city" or "from this vicinity" refers to Mount
Vernon, Ohio. I regret that in this scrapbook, Grandma didn't put the dates
beside the items she clipped. The following items were between 1900 and 1920.
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph White, who were married recently, came home Thursday evening from their wedding trip. Honoring the newly-weds, the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Burt White of 910 W. High street entertained with a six o'clock dinner. There were twenty guests, among them Mrs. Ferd Wetzel and Mrs. Howard Bruffett of Columbus, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Sellers and Mrs. Cora McGugin of Green Valley.
A quiet wedding took place Wednesday morning at ten-thirty at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Almon E. Stauffer of No. 509 N. Main street, when their daughter Margaret and Mr. Clifford O. Rockwell, also of this city, were united in marriage. The Rev. Wm E. Hull of St. Paul's Episcopal church performed the ceremony, the ring service being used. Only a very few relatives and most intimate friends were present. The bride wore a dark blue traveling suit and was unattended. The out-of-town guests were Mr. and Mrs. R.B. Rockwell of Meadville, Pa., and Mrs. Katharine McIntire of Mt. Gilead. Mr. and Mrs. Rockwell left at noon for a short trip thru the East.
Mr. William Ray Culbertson and Miss Rhea Masteller were united in marriage at high noon Thursday at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Masteller, in Niles, O., the Rev. Mr. Gordon officiating. Among the guests were Mr. and Mrs. L.A. Culbertson of Mt. Vernon and Mr. George Culbertson of Akron, parents and brother of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. Barker Montis of Warren, uncle and aunt of the bride. Mr. and Mrs. Culbertson are spending a few days in Pittsburgh. They will come to Mt. Vernon, Monday and on Tuesday will leave for Denver, Col., where they will reside.
Mr. Ralph White, an employee in the offices of the Mt. Vernon Bridge Co., and Miss Mabel Sellers were united in marriage at high noon New Year's day at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Sellers of Sparta. The Rev. W.R. Reed, pastor of the M.E. church at Sparta officiated, and the ceremony was witnessed by immediate relatives and a few close friends. Mrs. R.C. Sellers sang, "O Promise Me." The Lohengrin wedding march was played by Miss Grace Erma Sterritt of Marengo. Mr. Homer White of Wooster was among the guests from a distance. After a short wedding trip, Mr. and Mrs. White will make their home in Mt. Vernon.
Formal announcement has been made by Mrs. Clara Gordon of this city of the engagement of her daughter, Mrs. Helen Louise Gerrish, to Dr. John Legge of Cumberland, Maryland. Dr. Legge, during his five years' residence in Cumberland, has earned a prominent position in front ranks of medical practitioners in western Maryland. His years of preparation in this country and abroad, but notably in the clinics of Vienna, Berlin, Paris and London, where he spent three years in assidious study, gave him broadened experience. The wedding will take place in Pittsburgh, Pa., January 12, in the presence of the immediate relatives of the contracting couple.
A copy of the Cumberland (Md) Daily News, containing the following dispatch from Pittsburgh, Pa., dated Jan. 12, has been received here. "In the Louis XIV room of the Hotel Schenley this afternoon at one o'clock with a small company of relatives and intimate friends of the contracting parties to witness the ceremony, Dr. John E. Legge of Cumberland, Md., and Mrs. Helen Louise Gerrish of Mt. Vernon, Ohio, were united in marriage, the nuptial rite being solemnized by the Reverend G.S. Richards, Ph.D., pastor of the First Congregational church of this city. "Both the Louis XIV and the private dining hall adjoining were beautifully decorated, a color scheme of red and green being artistically carried out. The bride, who was attired in a handsomely tailored traveling suit of dark blue panne velvet, with hat of harmonious shade, carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley and wore the groom's gift, a pearl and diamond lavallier. She was given in marriage by her mother, Mrs. Clara L. Gordon of Mt. Vernon, Ohio. while Master Charles Gordon Smith, the four-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver H. Smith of this city and a nephew of the bride, acted as ring bearer, the ring service of the Congregational church being performed. "Following the ceremony and a brief period of congratulations, an elaborate wedding feast, especially prepared for the happy occasion was served. "In addition to those previously mentioned the company included Mrs. Oliver H. Smith of Cumberland, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Zinck of Steubenville, Ohio; Mr. Tennant and Dr. Behan of Pittsburgh, Joseph M. Crouch of Clarksburg, W.Va. and W.W. Brown of Cumberland. Owing to the critical illness of Mrs. Corey of Niles, Ohio, the venerable grandmother of the bride, the plan to have the ceremony solemnized at the home of the bride's mother was changed during the past few days with the substitution of the arrangement previously recited. "Dr. and Mrs. Legge will spend their honeymoon in the East and upon their return to this city will occupy the handsome and commodious residence No. 56 Cumberland street, recently purchased by the groom. Announcement cards state that they will be at home to their friends after March fifteenth."
Many Attend Reception
Dr. and Mrs. John E. Legge of Cumberland, Md., who were married recently in Pittsburgh, Pa., and who have been spending several days in Mt. Vernon, received friends in the alcove parlor at Hotel Curtis Friday evening from 8 to 10 o'clock. They were assisted by Mr. and Mrs. John Whitford and Mr. and Mrs. Robert G. Baldwin, intimate friends of the bride, who was formerly Mrs. Helen Louis Gerrish of this city. About one hundred and twenty-five acquaintances called. Dainty refreshments were served. Dr. and Mrs. Legge went to Columbus Saturday afternoon to visit Mrs. Lulu Canning and Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Ensminger until Monday, when will go to New York and other eastern cities to spend three weeks before returning to Cumberland.
