RICHMOND FAMILY REUNION

 

   No person would have believed that there were more than eight hundred people named Richmond, or who had been named Richmond and married and thus changed their names, or who had married Richmonds, or who were descended from the Richmonds who settled in Marshall county.  Yet the roll signed at the Richmond reunion held at Crow's Grove on Fork ridge Sunday, the 7th, is the all-sufficient proof.

   And, furthermore, on account of threatening weather up until late forenoon all the folks that had intended attending did not go.  There were a few there who were not connected with the Richmonds and on the other hand, not all signed the register as it was a big crowd and difficult to reach everyone.

   It was an ideal day of meeting old friends and gaining new ones. Everyone seemed to be one family in sentiment as well as name.

   All ages were there.  Mrs Phoebe Gatts, 87, was enjoying the day as much as the children.

   Below appears the report of the secretary, Miss Vena Richmond:

   On Sunday, August 7, 1927, at Crow's Grove, on Fork ridge, the Richmonds who were of the early pioneers in Marshall county, WV held their second reunion, the purpose of which was to renew old and form new friendships and acquaintances.

   The reunion was opened with song services "Blessed be the Tie that Binds."

   Scripture reading by Rev J M Rine, pastor of the Church of Christ of Glen Easton.

   Prayer by Rev F W Sigler, pastor of the Methodist church at Rosbys Rock.

   Noon hour was announced by S T Richmond and there was a bountiful dinner spread by some of the best cooks of West Virginia and adjoining states.

   Over eight hundred (800) partook of the elegant dinner, of which 142 of these registered were Richmonds.  After all had fared sumptuously and spent some time in a social way, attention was called by S T Richmond, after which a short program was rendered.

   Opened by song, address of welcome by M A Richmond of Akron, Ohio.  Talk by Rev F W Sigler of Rosbys Rock.  Song.  Talk by Henry G Richmond of Silver Hill, Wetzel county.  Talk by J V Shepherd, Captina.  Talk by Lee Richmond, Akron, Ohio.  Solo by Mrs R D Windgrove of Kingwood, WV.  Talk by D E Mason, New Martinsville.  Talk by E W Richmond, Glen Easton.  Song led by Arch Mason of Glendale.  Rev J M Rine of Glen Easton, gave a brief history of the Richmond

family.  Talk by Everet Mason, of Proctor.  Song.

   The following officers were elected for the coming year: S T Richmond was nominated for president and unanimously elected.  Miss Vena Richmond, secretary, Clem Young, treasurer.

   A motion offered by Everet Mason proposing that the Richmond, Young, and Mason families merge was carried.

   The meeting was closed by singing, "God Be With You Till We Meet Again." Prayer by Rev J R Harris.

   I wish to thank Clem Young, Edith B Carmichael, and Mr and Mrs S T Richmond for their services in making up this report.

 

    Vena Richmond, Sec'y
