It is amazing that you've continued this tradition for over 100 years! I've been reading a lot about family reunions, and I can't say I've read about many that have gone on this long. Great job on keeping the tradition alive and making sure your family always stays connected.   All the best, Laura http://myfamilyreunionideas.org

I discovered this site while doing research on my Great Aunt, Mattie Foote who was married to Levi John Rowan.  Coming from a very small family (3 left) in Tulsa, OK, it is a joy to finally find pieces of the family tree on my mother's side.  I am sharing this site with my other family members so we can learn more about the family.

Hey everyone skydiving lessons are going well, I've only lost one client this season. At 4:30, everyone look up as I will be parachuting into the park for the afternoon festivities. I have a feeling this year's reunion will be unforgettable.

See everyone soon,

Bring on the slip N' slide!

I'm really looking foward to seeing everyone and catching up. Derick and Ryan, I'm sorry we will miss you this year. But, I understand working with pygmies and being knee deep in it.

To everyone else, I've already packed the slip N' slide and lawn darts. This should be one heck of a tournament. We will toss the darts, while sliding on the slip N' slide!

See you tomorrow.

Love you all.....Dale

From All Who Are Heaven Bound:

To My Beloved Family

One day from above, I heard this calming voice

At the same time

I could see the beautiful skies above begin to open

I knew it was our Lord, And he ask me to join him

I ask him, Why me, Why now

He replied:

It is time for you to come home my child

Don’t be frightened, Come with me now

I ask him:

Will I always be remembered?

He promised me:

You will always be remembered my child

You will always remain in the hearts of your family

You will always be remembered in their prayers

Trusting in him, I agreed to join him

He picked me up and the skies opened

As we were soaring through the beautiful clouds

I knew I was going home

At that moment, all of my pain left me

Peace overwhelmed my entire body and soul

I am now in a place of complete beauty

I know it is hard for you to understand

It is time for you to replace the sadness in your hearts for me

It is time for you to fill your hearts with joy for me

Because he is holding me in his arms, I am finally home with our Lord

Forever Love

I really enjoyed your website and all the beautiful pictures.  It interests me because my grandfather was named Frank Hayden of Lexington, KY.  I know very little about his family just that he had a first cousin, Charlie Hayden, who I met in Danville, Ky at the time he was 105 years old.  My mother name is Viola Hayden and her sister, Delia.  They also had a brother, Robert Francis Hayden who lived in Shelbyville.  I don't know if my grandfather had brothers, sisters or what???  If anyone know, please let me know.

This is a wonderful website and it is the tool that I plan to use on my quest to know my mother's side of the family even more! I've known about this family reunion for some time. My mother, Lula Isom Dawolo (her b'day always falls on the 3rd weekend in August) who just passed in January used to talk about it. I learned of its longevity and significance when my Great Aunt Elizabeth Modok Lemons died last year. She had several copies of the history that is posted on this website. The most memorable connection is the Petit plantation. I know a little about my maternal line, as I've heard names like Rowan, Jones, and Fields growing up, but I want to know much, much more. I am unable to make it to the family reunion this year, but I plan to participate in 2007. Please keep in touch, (612) 822-0573.
