Descendants of Ezekiel and Mary Jane Colman gathered for a family reunion on Oct. 6. "Colman Patriots, 1776-2001: Military Service and Efforts on the Home Front" was the theme of the 23rd annual Colman family reunion. Relatives came from as far away as Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The original Colmans arrived in Lawrence, Kansas Territory, in October 1854, with the fourth Massachusetts Emigrant Aid Party. Virginia A. Wulfkuhle, Topeka, submitted the photograph. Got a shot for Friends & Neighbors? Send it, along with your name, phone number and caption information, to Friends & Neighbors, P.O.
