|Dave Barber writes: "A reunion is held
each year during the month of July, in Schenectady, New York, to honor the memory of my grandfather, John Wardell Dodge, son of Bert John Dodge.|
A Beecher Reunion is also held in the Utica, NY area. As a child I remember occasionally we held the reunion in the Schenectady NY area but there was a 2 hours drive for most of the Beecher relatives. As they were mostly farmers, this was a hardship as they had to get home to milk the cows. Therefore most reunions were in the Utica area. For the last 10 or 15 years at least they have always held near Utica."

Nancy Pritchard writes: This is where Grace Dodge Pritchard lived. My son is living there now and the porch looks the same as it did. The small window to their right has been repaced with a larger one and the house now is all two stories.
