Lafayette Pike, near what was once called Little Chicago, and was well attended by the family relationship, but the family is not very large. There were about forty present and all enjoyed the reunion. Asher K. Tomlinson called the reunion together, after a fine dinner was enjoyed on the lawn, and made some interesting remarks and exhibited some keepsakes in the family, including a bottle which was used for carrying milk to school in the old days back in Ohio, but which looked much like a hard-liquor bottle.
   Roy Horney presided over the program and Miss Mary Emily Tomlinson served as secretary and did so well that both were re-elected to serve for the reunion at Mr. and Mrs. Franklin D. White at Charlottesville, Indiana, the third Sunday of June, 1941. Mrs. White had a fine part in the program, Sunday, reciting in a splendid way the fine poem of Bayard Taylor, "The Quaker Widow".
   The Tomlinson family traces its ancestry back to William Tomlinson, who came from Ireland, the family having a fine part in the Revolutionary war, and settled later in Guilford county, N. C. The family came to Indiana in 1832, first to Hendricks county, and then to Hamilton county in 1837. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Tomlinson's picture in a large frame, at the reunion, showed the finest characteristics of the family, religion, patriotism, courage, justice, industry, integrity and a kindly spirit of helpfulness toward any community in which they might live. Robert, the son of William, was the father of eight children, and these children were the parents of the family as it now is represented in this county: Milton, Martha, Noah, Jesse, Asenath, Jane, Levi and Esther.
   The Tomlinson family has had a fine part in the history of Hamilton county from the time when the members of the family helped operate the underground Railway successfully through this section of Indiana, with its terminal in Canada. They have been active in church work and also have taken interest in the advancement of the farming industry and of the building up of the fine stock interests of the county.
   Several short talks were made during the program following the dinner, by Finley Tomlinson, Dr. C. H. Tomlinson, Seth Hinshaw, Ludovic Hill, Mrs. White, and others and E. E. Neal spoke briefly in tribute to the history and characteristics of the family. Among those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Ludovic Hill, Mr. and Mrs. Roy B. Wood, Ralph and Fred Wood, Ella Tomlinson, Mr. and Mrs. Frank White, Dr. and Mrs. C. H. Tomlinson and daughter, Mary Emily, Marilyn McGuire, Densie Williams, Indianapolis; Margery Glover, Greenfield; Mr. and Mrs Wallace Baber, Ronda C. Hiatt, Sheridan; Leslie McGuire, Bernice McGuire, Westfield; Seth J. Hinshaw, Sheridan; Finley Tomlinson, Clara E. Hinshaw, Lulu McGuire, Ruth Esther Hill, Hazel T. Hill, Edith Hill and Mary Tomlinson. A group picture was taken and much appreciation was shown for the fine day spent on the lawn of the Horney home, with old-times recalled and a reasonable pride in the hearts of all present for the ancestry and accomplishments of the family in this county since coming from Carolina to show its supreme objection to slavery in the south.
