Elsie Brown and two of her Brothers started this Reunion in Koshkonong, Missouri it has been going for years now and is going strong. I have only been one time to this one 2 years ago now. After Jane and I decided that we were going to it I started to worry about it a lot. How do I act around people that I don't even know or have never even met I contacted Elsie and we talked on the phone for a long time about family. She knew my Father who has been dead since 1972 and my Grandparents, My Uncles, I felt like I knew Elsie all my life. She is just that kind of a person. I spoke with her on the phone today for about 30 minutes and asked her permission to put the reunion on the site. She seemed thrilled about the idea that some of the younger generations are showing an interest in keeping it all going.
There were around 125 people that showed up the year that I went. A lot of the people knew one another and like myself their were a lot that knew no one. That did not matter once you opened your car door to get out. People were really friendly coming up and asking what branch of the family I was from. You felt like you knew everybody there, and before it is all finished you do. So this web site and a lot of the info is Dedicated to ELSIE BROWN who without her it would have been impossible for me to do. Elsie you are thought of often and Loved even more......
Things to bring with you.
OLD FAMILY PHOTOS ( one picture that you have might not be much to you, but could be a treasure to someone else)
LETTERS from older family members passed down.
FAMILY BIBLES If your Family kept records in them
NOTES That were passed down
And to all of the people working on your trees. Please bring all of your info so we can make copies and exchange info.
Audrey Daniels informed me that she would have a copy machine there.
I hope that we will see you all there.
Breazeale Family Reunion
Anderson, South Carolina
When: August 14,1999
Where: Dorchestor Baptist Church
State: Anderson South Carolina
I spoke with Janice earlier tonight about adding the reunion to this site, just to make sure it was ok to have people contact her about the reunion. She seemed excited about it. Janice started this Family Reunion around 10 years ago and it is still running strong. She told me that the majority of the people that attend are Descendants from Kennon Breazeale, but anyone related is always welcome threre. Janice also publishes a Breazeale news letter, you may want to ask her about it as well. She has told me some really interesting things about our Ancestors from S.C.
Janice told me that a lot of the people come a day early and some stay a day late just to visit. You may want to make plans for it. Janice is also the well known lady that has taken over Lois Plotts work she began on "Breazeale Kin" she said that she will be retiring in the next year or so and plans on pursuing the book. after speaking to Janice about genealogy you begin to realize that she is a very knowledgeable Lady. (keep up the great work Janice) !!
As always remember to bring all the regular Pictures, Documents, Letters and notes and whatever else you can dig up.
I plan on attending this year.
I will add more to this as Janice lets me know motels, places to eat and things to do. So please check back with me.
