Last but not least are the relics owned by the Northrup family. The ‘Summer Kitchen’ at the rear of the Northrup home, is made of hewn timber: it being evident that sawed lumber was very scarce when it was built. The rafters were hewed and the lath were split lath, and nailed on between the joice. The doors and hinges are a true type of about the first kind made. This old building would surely interest those who seek objects of antiquity. This building was the first store in Athens Pa.
Another relic that its owner prizes very highly is a common sized Earthen-ware Sugar Bowl. It was the property of Squire Northrup’s great grand mother. Her name was Betsy Hammell. It has passed down through many generations, and was given to Mrs W.N. Bacon its present owner by her grandmother. Mrs. Squire Northrup, also some other very old and handsome dishes that had been the property of several different ones in her family. The decorations on the sugar bowl are blue, and the designs is a female milking a cow. A house and a church steeple are shown in the distance, the background being banked in with shrubbery and flowers.
FIRST REUNION OF THE NORTHRUP FAMILY.
The first reunion of the Northrup family occurred at the home of Mr. Emra Northrup on Pitney St., South Waverly on August 14th 1901. There was fifty of the family there in appreciation of the occasion. The day was passed in a pleasing way, the weather being fair. Tables were spread upon a lawn, shaded with fruit trees. After the banquet there was singing by all who wished to participate. Popular Violin solos by Emra Northrup. A paper entitled ‘Reunion’ was read by Mrs. Bert Hern. A poem was read by Master Lee Thompson entitled Our Little Elf’s, showing the older ones their spirit in progress and their desires.
Photographs representing four generations were taken. These were Mrs Anna Northrup, Mrs Hannah Jane Cuddeback Mrs Anna Belle Bacon and her son Lewis Earl Bacon. The same is a part of this book. The entire assemblage was then arranged for a picture, which was fair.
After conversing and congratulations, a fine supper was spread to all that were yet present. It was agreed by the leading members, that a reunion will take place annually in the future. Following are the names of the officers as was chosen and elected for the ensuing year.
