2016 Reunion with the Stewart Family


On Saturday, August 13, 2016, Allen Family members met with our extended family at  the Stewart Family Reunion in Cass County Michigan.

The dark rain clouds over Indiana only brought about a little drizzle for a few minutes during the dinner line up but canopies over dining tables kept even that amount of precipitation away from family members that were dining.  There were hay rides and ice cream along with toys for the children.

A family tree with names and photos was available for viewing and there was an Allen branch on the T-shirt available for sale.  Stewart family members were familiar with the Allen historical marker located in the county.

Your suggestions and assistance in making future Allen Reunions happen are welcome.

Family members met to share information, genealogical finds, photographs and other information, meet new family and catch up with what other relatives are doing.

We conducted our business meeting, received family reports, held officer elections and conducted other business and heard a report on potential family group alignment for future reunions.
