A copy of the following newspaper article, hand-identified as being from the Aug. 29, 1940, Lowell Tribune, was found in the Lowell Public Library's clipping files:
ANNUAL REUNION HELD
The annual reunion of the Dinwiddie Clan was held Sunday, August 25th, at Center School House, about eight miles Northeast of Lowell. While those eligible to membership in the Clan number many hundreds, they are so scattered over the country that is impossible for most of them to attend, and the annual meeting is composed principally of those living in Northwestern Indiana. Among the most numerous of the branches are the descendants of Mrs. Frances Dinwiddie Brownell, formerly of Lowell, whose death occurred recently at the age of 88 years. The youngest member in attendance at the meeting Sunday was a great-great-granddaughter of Mrs. Brownell, Mable Kay Folsom, who for a few months represented the fifth generation in one family.
Seth L. Pearce of Hebron, was the oldest member present; his mother, then Margaret Dinwiddie, a young girl living with her father Thomas Dinwiddie, was victorious over a young Indian who was annoying her. She used a pail of milk as her weapon, and brought it down on his head with well-aimed vigor.
J. Carl Brownell, of Lowell, is the newly elected president, and next year's meeting will be held at the same place, Center School House.
