Sunday, May 4, was the date of the annual in gathering of the Tinsley family at the home of Mrs. Mary Tinsley near Charity. This reunion was held at this season because of the national convention of the Christian Churches in St. Louis which is in session from May 1 to May 7, brought a number of the family to St. Louis. Hence, those who were delegates to the convention slipped away over Sunday and the rest of the family came, so that the ten children were with their mother on that day.
