James Family to Wyoming, Rileys to Maitland

Families were on the move in 1924.  From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), December 4, 1924, page 1:

Surprise for the James’

On the evening of November 28th, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. James were pleasantly surprised when the Successful Club members and their families came in on them unexpectedly.  A social evening was enjoyed by all and refreshments were served during the evening.

Mr. James and family are preparing to leave for their new home near Torrington, Wyo., the first of the year and everyone regrets having them leave the community.

Those present were:  Mrs. Dave Mitchell, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mitchell and children, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Goslee and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Caywood and children, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wells and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. McDaniel and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Ell Peter, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Linville and children, Mr. and Mrs. Loren Pfeiffer and son, Mrs. Fannie Peter and son Bob, Miss Nina Bingaman, Mrs. Mary Linville, Mrs. Alfred Dewitt and children, Miss Martha Pfeiffer, Miss Osa Shell.

 

The Rileys to Maitland

Martin Riley and family moved to Maitland Wednesday morning where they will make their future home.  Martin disposed of his interest in the dray business a few weeks ago to Lester LInville and has purchased a new Dodge truck and will go into the trucking business at Maitland.  Skidmore people are sorry to lose the Rileys for they were well liked by all who knew them. (But they will come back.)
