ALBERTREED, 92, GIVEN HONORS BY IRVINGTON FOLKS Irvington: A reception was given at the local Presbyteran church in Irvington last Friday evening honoring Albert Reed. The occasion was a courtesy extended to Mr. Reed by the people and children of his community for his interest in hem in ercting a granite marker which marks the historic - spot of old Irvington. Mr. 'Reed, belonging to one of ,.ie old families of pioneer days, s the oldest of the last remaining early settlers. It will be remembered that it was nearly 88 years ago that Mr and Mrs. Malachl Clark, their daughter Elizabeth and son, Thomas, with the Wm. Clarks came to Irvington make their hpme as the first permanent settlers. The Lown of Irvington was named after [rving Clark, son of the Wm. Clarks, said to have been the first white child 'born in Irvington. Martha Clark, daughter of the Malachi Clarks, was the first teacher In Kossuth county, teaching in Gopher colleg'e, which was located in Union township. The early history of this township, of the Robisons, Wrights, Johnsons, Carlona, Fills, Greens, Groses, Wiltfongs, Parsons, Haggards, Sample and others with Samples and many others with their hardships, and social activities almost reads like -fiction. So the span of Mr. Reed's 92 years reaches from pioneer days to modern living. Mr Reed, after spending several weeKs visiting here and in North Dakota .has returned to his home in Kan siis. It may .be said the best wishes of the community are extended to him—an entertaining and interesting grand old'man. Trinity Lutheran parochial chool will begin on Monday, Aug- . IJr. and Mrs. C.
