Notes for REUBEN WITHERS:
(We now know that William is not the Father of Reuben)
From "The Kin Patch " by Page Lubach Warden
Reuben Withers was the only child of William Withers and His wife
Elizabeth Bonham. He apparently did not get along with his stepmother and
left home. Sonny tells much about this in his journal.
Reuben Withes was a member of the Union Club in 1850 and was acting
Governor. My understanding is that the Union Club is the oldest club of
its type in this country. The Knickerbockers Club grew out of the Union
Club as many members felt that the Union Club had grown lax in their
membership policies. David Dunham Withers was a member of the Knickerbockers
Club in 1855 and Alfred Dunham was a member in 1870.
The Metropolitan Club was established by J. Pierpoint Morgan and as a
result, one of his friends was denied acceptance into the Union and Knickerbockers
Clubs because of bad table manners.
