There Here!

The cousins all started arriving Friday night for the 105th Galbreath Reunion!

Our annual 1st night meal

Ribs at Roc's

Marty, Fred, Mary and Fran (here from Maryland)

Saturday morning breakfast at 1515

Later in the morning our cousins had a grave marking for their ancestor Samuel Ashmore in Oakland IL. He fought in the War of 1812 and the ceremony was conducted by the Daughters of the War of 1812

Next up, lunch and genealogy workshop at 1515

Used my new picnic basket to serve soda in the is hot out and we were having a 1940's themed luncheon.

Wine for lunch? Well...we had to have a toast to our family and 105 years of Reunions!

Colorado cousins visiting with Fred

There really getting into the research!

Mary and Marty made all the wonderful food!

After dinner we took a tour of the recently remodeled train station in Mattoon IL. This is the station where my Dad left for and returned from WWII.

Cousin Fred loves being with "his girls". We love him so!
Do we look like we are having fun? Laughs a minute. Wish I could show the hilarious video of cousin Bob and Judy as they headed through a corn field to find a tombstone...2 hours later they returned. They think they saw Shoeless Joe Jackson!

The Reunion at 1100 tomorrow. Hope we have a good turn out.

Sorry I am missing all your wonderful posts that I love to read. I will be visiting you soon.

Have a blessed Sunday.
