    • Newaygo County marriage records indicate John A. Bullis, 32, married Phoebe Lloyd, 21, on 10 May 1894 in Garfield Township. He was born in Otsego County, New York and worked in the sheriff’s department. She was a domestic who was born in Ohio. His parents were Isaac Bullis and Anna Brooks. Hers were Lloyd and Grubaugh. C. W. Gardner was the minister, and Bert Hart and Dena Docter were witnesses.

      13 September 1900, “The Reunion,” Newaygo Republican:
      “As this paper went to press last week the Reunion was at its zenith. The hurdy gurdy’s, the merry-go-round, the man with the dolls, and men with all sorts of devices for separating people from their cash, were in full bloom, and the voices crying their wares or their attractions were mingled together in the Babel-like confusion. The crowd was simply enormous; more people on the grounds than ever before, and more orderly. President Champion and Vice President Downing, without seeming effort, were masters of the situation, and no disorderly conduct was attempted. Down town the crowd was not so large as in previous years and the best order was maintained all along the line. The weather was perfection itself all the week, which accounts perhaps for the crowd remaining on the grounds all the time.
      Thursday’s proceedeings were opened at ten o’clock in the forenoon by a splendid address by Hon. W.C. Maybury of Detroit. Patriotic in matter and polished in delivery, the Mayor was listened to by the great crowd with earnest attention. Mr. William Wright of this village followed with a characteristic address full of noble, patriotic sentiments, and was greeted with most generous applause.
      At one o’clock in the afternoon the crowd again assembled and was called to order by Mr. John Rosewarne of Ashland, who introduced Hon. Perry F. Powers of Cadillac, and for more than an hour the audience was spellbound by his wit, pathos and elequence. It is not derogatory to others to say that his address was equal if not superior to anything ever heard at the Reunions of the past, although the most distinguished orators of the state and nation have spoken from the same platform. At the request of Col. Bishop, who was not feeling well, Mr. Powers occupied nearly all the time allotted to speaking, the Colonel contenting himself, if not the audience, with a few pertainent remarks.
      At three o’clock the Industrial parade was formed down town and preceded by the band made the march to the grounds and through them, to the surprise and delight of the assembled crowds. Nothing like this affair has ever been attempted in this county. It was simply superb. No pains or expense seem to have been spared by the participators in their efforts to produce a novel and rich display. Not all the exhibits were business advertisements, the turnout of Mrs. W.W. Pearson, a trap beautifully draped in red and white bunting and containing several little girls dressed in the same colors, was very pretty; the carriage and white horses driven by Miss Minnie Gardiner, and decorated with a profusion of red roses; a carriage trimmed with flowers and bunting and occupied by Mrs. Watzuauer, Miss Friederich of Grand Rapids, and Miss Root of Chicago, driven by Will Thompson, and the carriage of Sheriff and Mrs. Bullis, with their two little boys on the back attracted much attention.
      The hardware store of E.M. Shaw was represented by a load of hardware, stoves and tools, the latter being arranged to spell the name of the proprietor. The Cement Co. exhibit was partially composed of briquettes arranged to spell the name of the company, and a cart covered with blue prints of the plans of the buildings and machinery. A number of scrapers and carts were labeld as representing the extension of the railroad to the marl beds. Miss Clara King drove the exhibit of Belgian Hares from George King’s Rabbitry. Geo. A. Turner’s meat market exhibit, and The Courtright represented by several large men sitting at a table leden with blolgna sausage, watermelon and other luxuries, Frank Van Leuven’s furniture exhibit, the grocery display of Charley Anderson and Co. and a beautifully decorated float containing a number of the L.O.T. M. all attracted special attention. We may have overlooked some of the best features of the parade, but it is perhaps sufficient to say that there was not a single feature of the whole affair unworthy of more than a passing notice. Pearson’s store, Thompson Bros. store, McKinlay’s blacksmith shop, Carlson’s shoe and harness establishiment, Dick Potter’s immense dray load of boxes from the various business establishiments of the town and the proprietor of The Courtright, driving a splendid team and beautiful trap, all went to make one of the most unique and beautiful of displays. Another notable feature of the parade was the K.O.T.m. at their fastictic costumes, which attracted a great deal of attention, as well as the float of the Royal Circle, loaded with little girls dressed in white.
      Friday was Maccabee day, and the usual great crowd was present. Mrs. Lillian M. Hollister, of Detroit, Supreme Commander of the L.O.T.M. of the World, Judge Kendrick of Saginaw, E.M. Gillett of Muskegon, Deputy Great Commander, and J.J. McDonald of Grand Rapids, also a Deputy Great Commander, all talked most acceptably to the fraternity. The Bailey and Newaygo Camps M.W. of A. were on parade in uniform and fromed down town and narched to the grounds, where the Bailey Camp gave a drill which was witnessed by hundreds of interested people, and to say they did well is but speaking lightly, as nothing of the kind has ever been attempted and as well performed as the work done by this Camp.
      On Friday morning at nine o’clock the annual meeting of the old soldiers was held and a most gratifying financial report was read by Secretary Edwards. The following officers were then elected for the ensuing year:
      President -- Jas. D Champion
      Vice President -- William Downing
      Secretary -- James H. Edwards
      Treasurer -- E.O. Shaw
      Quartermaster -- H. D. Woodward.
      A vote of thanbks was extended to the Cement Co. for the tender of the use of the grounds for next year’s reunion and the invitation accepted.
      Saturday, camp was broken and the great crowd which had occupied the grounds for a week and more silently passed away.
