NEWSPAPER ARTICLE DATED OCT. 15,1956
"YOUNGSTER" 61, HOSTS PARTY FOR HIS 6 SISTERS IN MANOA.
Six sisters and one brother whose ages total nearly five centuries got together yesterday in Manoa to celebrate the birthdays of two of the sisters.
Honored were Mrs. Mary Bonsall, 77, of Broomall and H. Bertha Gettz, 75, South Ardmore, who will mark their birthdays October 26.
The group had a family dinner at the home of C. Russell Gettz, 61, the "youngster" of the family, at 143 Shelbourne road, Manoa. They then attended evening services at Trinity Lutheran Church, which was founded about 80 years ago by their grandfather, Charles W. Gettz.
Others at the party were Mrs. Margaret Horton, 79, of Llanerch, the oldest; Mrs. Martha Hagy, Brookline, Mrs. S. Edith Bishop, Worchester, Mass. and Mrs. Mable B. Lukens, Manoa.
The Gettz family is one of the oldest in the Manoa area, the grandfather settling there in the early 1800's. The seven are the children of David and Hanna Gettz.
