Note I originally found this on the Mitchell County Archives. However, the link is now broken and I am unable to locate it. So I have removed the link. ejj

Note: there was no year on this, but item #1, was dated 1906. So that is a possibility of the year. If it is 1906, Tuesday, the 23rd occurred in January and October, (ejj).

II. REUNION OF COMPANY K

In 1862, Mitchell County's own Company K. of the 27th Iowa Infantry entered the service. After three years of service and after the war closed, many of the company returned to Mitchell County. A few are left in the county, a few other are scattered in other states. To all who remain, the chance to meet is one of the happiest events of their lives. Every year or two as large a number as can get together with their wives at one of the homes in Osage.

Tuesday, the 23rd, such a gathering occurred at the hospitable home of George T. Frazee one of the members of Co. G. of the same Regiment. Sergeant S. A. Carter, to his comrades know as "Dell" Carter of Co. K, with his wife came from their home at Coleman, S.D. and they were the guests of honor.

Mrs. Carter was a Miss Drake, her girlhood home having been in Burr Oak township from which about twenty-five boys enlisted in the war.

Those present Tuesday were S. A. Carter and wife; Henry Drake, Hi Wynn, Charles Sweney and wife, John B. Ryndes and wife, Horace Piper of Mitchell, C. H. Davis and wife, B. C. Hutchins and wife, Austin H. White and wife, J. H. Sweney and the host and hostess G. T. Frazee and wife.
