History Morris County New Jersey, Volume II (Lewis Publishing Co.: 1914)

On October 9, 1912, twenty-five members of the first New York Volunteer Engineersí Association and the veterans of the vicinity, together, together with their wives and families and other guests, gathered at the home of Abraham RYERSON, at Lincoln Park, to celebrate the thirty-second reunion of the association. The veterans were given a royal reception by Mr. RYERSON and the reunion was one of the most enjoyable from every standpoint that the association has had. Not only did the older people take the reunion as an excuse for a holiday, but the school children as well, for the Lincoln Park School was dismissed after the morning session in order that they might be present in the afternoon and hear the old soldiers talk about the war. Mr. RYERSONís home was decorated in patriotic style with large American flags. Owing to the number of people the host was unable to accommodate his guests in the house, and a large tent was erected on the lawn, where the dinner and exercises were held. Exclusive of the school children there were over one hundred of the veterans and their friends present. After the meal had been served Mr. RYERSON gave the veterans a chance to talk and each speaker confined his remarks to a short space of time. Among the veterans who spoke were Comrades L. A. PIAGET, C. F. HOPKINS, H. H. TRENOR, Major PARSONS, Rev. Fred E. FOERTNER, of Pompton Plains, N. J., Mr. RYERSON and several others.

The photo listed as Lloyd Siblings was descibed to me by Dora as taken on the occasion of a gathering of the siblings when their mother Eleanor Gertrude (Watson) Lloyd died on March 03, 1945 in Santa Ana, Orange, CA. She was buried March 07, 1945 Fairhaven Cemetery, Santa Ana, CA; Crypt 8, Tier "C, " South Corridor, Fairhaven Mausoleum. It was a little unclear whether all made it in time for the funeral but we had dated the photo as about March of 1945. Dora remembers it as a good reunion. Alfred's son Bruce identifies the man in the military uniform as Jim Brodie, Grace Lloyd's husband. J. F. Foertner, Gladys Lloyd's husband and is in military uniform. Since his ship the USS Pennsylvania was at Hunter's Point for dry-docking about March 15, 1945, John may have been there too.
