ENGLISH BROTHERS REUNITE
Harker English and his daughter, Mrs. Lottie Selby, of Franklin, Kan., arrived here Monday for a few days visit with his brother, Joel R. English. The brothers had not met in sixty years. Harker English went to Kansas in young manhood and has been there ever since. He is 82 years old while Joe is 84. When Harker went to Joe’s house Monday he told him he was looking for a place to stay all night. Joe, not recognizing his brother after sixty years, responded dubiously that he would have to see the boss about it, indicating Mrs. English. Then explanations followed, and the travelers were received with rejoicing. C. C. English, 77 years of age, who makes his home with his daughter, Mrs. T. P. Sifford, east of Anna, is also a brother, and it was a happy reunion when the three brothers met Tuesday. They all hail originally from Jackson, Mo.
