Old Settlers Meet - 40th Anniversary

     "Elizabeth Maugherman, aged 105 years, was unable to reach town until afternoon.  She made a few remarks
at the Park meeting and said the first house she lived in had no roof, and it was all right when it didn't rain.  Her
talk was interesting because the scenes she described were so distant.  She was presented with a silver spoon and said she believed she would trade it for a pair of shoes."
Steuben Republican, August 24, 1910
