From the Skidmore Standard, October 7, 1904, page 1:

A Pleasant Occasion.

 

On Wednesday, October 5th at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Barber’s 3 1/2 miles west of the city occurred a very pleasant social affair, in the way of a family reunion.

 

Fifty guests were assembled from five different states, among whom were:  Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Coston, of Ft. Morgon, Colorado; Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Coston of Wray, Colorado; Mr. W. M. Coston, of Cleo, Oklahoma; Mrs. G. W. Zeller, of Marion, Kansas; Mrs. W. A. Walker, of Ames, Iowa, all formerly of Missouri, also Mr. J. T. Hays and Mrs. Dr. Morrison, of Maryville, and Miss Mary Martin, of Burlington Junction.

 

The day was spent in feasting and pleasant conversation, and Mr. H. H. Coston entertained the company with music from the gramophone.

 

The occasion was the meeting of the five Coston brothers, whose combined ages are 374 years.

 

Photographer Ashbrook was summoned to take several views of the company.
