Rorick Family Reunion

The Rorick family—with many branches, famed in local annals, true and staunch clansman—held its annual reunion Wednesday with Dr. E.H. Rorick, ex-member of the Ohio legislature and for some years connected with state institutions for the insane and feeble-minded, now living in more or less retirement at his beautiful Fayette home. It is a delightful place for such a meeting, and noted for hospitality. The Roricks had one of their characteristic good times—no formalities, just visiting, with the inevitable jokes and stories—and a plentitude of picnic provisions. His rubicund face and snowy hair, giving him patriarchal dignity, were continually in evidence and his sunny smile kept up the lively cheer of his kindred and friends.

An interesting letter from Mrs. Georgia Bennett Clark, now at Manila, was read, and the old officers were re-elected: Cosper Rorick, president, and Mrs. Amelia Rorick, secretary and treasurer, both of Morenci. Those present were: Hon. G.B. Horton and wife, Fruit Ridge; Hon. J.C. Rorick and wife, Wauseon; Mr. and Mrs. H.C. Rorick and family, Toledo; Dr. Rorick Bennett, Miss Bessie R.
