Family celebrated Andy Randolph's birthday

Mr. and Mrs. Andy Randolph were honored on Aug. 6, 1939, when relatives and friends gathered at their country home near Cisco, Ga. to celebrate Mr. Randolph's birthday.

The crowd consisted of their immediate family, three daughters and two sons and their families; visiting nieces and nephews numbering 20 and their families, and several other invited guests until a total of 208 were present.

String music and vocal selections were furnished by two grandchildren and greatly enjoyed by all present.

A bountiful luncheon was spread on the shady lawn.

The Randolph family was one of the oldest in this section and had for many years kept the custom of an annual reunion, originating at Mount Bethel, the oldest home church of the ancestors. The name of the church was later changed to Union Grove on Bates Pike, and for the previous three years the reunion had been held at the home of "Uncle Andy" on his birthday. He was the only living member of the original family.

At the time he was still very active and considered a leading farmer of his community.
