The following Monday they took a steamboat up the Hudson river to Albany, from there taking a canal boat to Buffalo. This trip took them 18 days. At this point a man was hired with a team to take them to Niagara Falls, arriving there about July 1, 1860. They resided thre until the summer of 1883 when they came to Illinois and purchased 80 acres of land in Adams township, six miles southeast of Leland. This was the 14th reunion. There were 126 relatives and two visitors present.
