Company B, Sixth Kansas Cavalry Reunion

The Seymour Democrat - 19 July 1906
  There has been a change of date for his year's reunion of the survivors of Company B, Sixth Kansas Cavalry which is to be held in Seymour.  The reunion will be held on Saturday, August 18, instead of August 11, as that date interferes with the Old Soldiers meeting at Corydon.  Instead of having the meeting at first announced at the home Mrs. Pendergast, it will be held in the park on the public square and the G. A. R. and Women's Relief Corps of Seymour are making great preparation for the even and all of the members of the company who have heard of the new arrangements are anticipating more that the usual interest at the reunion. The word has gone forth that "beans and coffee" will be free and there will be an addess by Purley Rinker, one of the Company B. comrades. The Milwaukee will run a special train from Mystic to Seymour on this date for the accommodation of the Old Soldiers and for all those wishing to attend.  They are making large preparations to acommondate a large crowd and everyone is cordially invited to attend. --Mystic Letter
