David's Reunion

There is only one family reunion Earl and I attend and it’s his mother’s side.   Earl and I have been married forty nine years coming this August and I have seen his ‘DAVIDS’  reunion attendance go from three hundred fifty to this year’s sixty people and we are grateful  that there were that many.
 The reunion started out years ago for descendants of his Great- Grand Parents Ruth Call Davids who is a full Piute Indian and husband James Henry Davids who came into the Utah Territory as a teamster of the Johnston’s Army.  Ruth was adopted by Anson Call and his first wife Mary Flint at age of about two years old.  With permission from Anson Call, James Henry married Ruth when she was fourteen years old, he was twenty nine.   This couple was one of several families who were the first settlers in Chesterfield, (then Bannock now Caribou), Idaho.   A beautiful valley located eleven miles north of Bancroft.  Bancroft is between Lava Hot Springs and Soda Springs, Idaho.
Now, it has been decided to move to the next generation of descendant’s; Earl’s Grandparents Anson Chester the sixth child of Ruth and James and his eternal mate Caroline Paul. 
The 'Chet' Davids family plan to meet every year at the 'ole homestead' in Chesterfield.  Hopefully next year there will be more that sixty. 
Anson Chester Davids b 1874-d 1957
Carloine Paul b 1880- 1955
Married: 28 Sep 1898
What a handsome couple!

Rules for Good Fellowship

Ever, ever will I learn!  I have in my stash of 'ideas for Renée's Blog' this piece of information with nothing written on it to remind me of;
1) When I received it,  2) Where I was when I received it, 3) Or, who gave it to me.
Word of advice; ALWAYS put these three pieces of information on anything you want to save, because if you are like me and think you will remember, you won't.
I'm guessing it was a handout for lesson given in DUP (Daughters of Utah Pioneers) a couple of years ago.   I have 'googled it' by name and title hoping to find a source with no success, which I was surprised because more often than not I can find a source.
Just look at the date on this piece of Wisdom; 1860.   I felt it was still worth posting even though I can't prove Marianne is a real person!  I do think she is!  Wouldn't you love to have this wise person in your pedigree!
