1904 Meeting of WCTU in Binghamton, NY

In September 1904, the Broome County WCTU met at the High Street Methodist Episcopal Chruch for a conference lasting several days.  On the second day, September 2, Stephen's wife, Lavina, is noted as the musical director for the previous year. The office is abolished during the session because it is deemed unnecessary.

Memorial services are conducted for three women including Mrs. S. D. Wilbur's daughter, Leoria Meeker who had died the previous year. Her daughter, Leoria, was adopted into the union by consensus, even though she is an infant of 9 months. 

Little Leoria is my grandmother.
