Mr. and Mrs. E.T. Beardsley and family, of Sashabaw, on Tuesday, entertained a number of relatives and friends; among whom were Mrs. Elizabeth Sutton, the aged mother of Mrs. Beardsley; Mr. L.M. Sutton, of Chicago, a brother, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Beardsley, of Victor, and Mrs. M.D. Lawrence and little granddaughter, of Fenton.
“Grandma Sutton” was the center of attraction, for though she recently celebrated her 92nd birthday, she retains her memory to a wonderful extent and joined in the story telling and laughter with apparently as much enjoyment as the younger members of the family, and not withstanding the storm and rough roads, endured the trip from Fenton splendidly. She will remain with Mrs. B. the coming summer, and it is hope will enjoy many more such delightful gatherings.
