In conjunction with a reunion of the children of the late Joseph
and Catherine Brown family, formerly of Byrnesville, former residents, spouses and friends from the village had a reunion
at Alfredos restaurant in Fountain Springs, Thursday, July 14, 2005. A large group attended, some traveling great distances
to attend this reunion.
WOW ! What a feeling it was to meet former residents that I have
not seen for over 10, 20, and even 50 years. Needless to say I did not recognize many that I have not seen since grade school
days. Some of the residents left the village over 50 years ago and others relocated in the 80,s and 90's because of the mine
