Publ. Alliance, Ohio:
The Review Polishing Col.

To all those who have ever lived and whose memories carry them back to kindred ties and friendly associations in
Hanover and surrounding community is this little volume dedicated.

The Family Meeting.

We are all here!
Father, mother, sister, brother,

All who hold each other dear.
Each place is fill'd; we're all at home;
Today, let no cold stranger come:
It is not often thus around
Our old familiar town we're found:
Bless then the meeting and the spot;
For once let be every care forgot;
Let gentle Peace assert her power,
And kind Affection rule the hour;
          We're all - all here,

          We're not all here!
Some are away - the dead ones dear,
Who throng'd with us this ancient town,
And gave the hour to guiltless mirth.
Fate, with a stern relentless hand,
Look'd in and thinn'd our little band:
Some, like a night-flash, pass'd away,
And some sank lingering day by day;
he quiet gave-yard - some lie there -
And cruel Ocean has his share:
          We're not all here.

          We're are all here*
Father, mother, sister, brother,
     You that I love with love so dear.
This may not long of us be said;
Soon must be join the gather'd dead,
And by the town we now are round,
Some other circle will be found.
Oh! then, that wisdom may we know,
Which yields a life of peace below;
So, in the world to follow this,
May each repeat, in words of bliss,
          We're all - all - here!
                               CHARLES SPRAGUE.


     From a sense of love and admiration for the little old home town wherein my eyes first oped to the light of day and the prepetuating of the history of the town, nestled as it is amid the hills of western Columbiana county, has this volume been compiled and written.
     For it we have but one apology, this, that pictures and a brief sketch of the lives of all who have in any way added to the material interest and welfare of the town could not be included therein.  Much more could have been written: much of incident and history, we know has been lost.
     To those who have in any way contributed to the work, either in well wishes or deed, we cherish the most kindly feeling and regard.
