The 12 Pioneer Families of Southwest Lawrence County, Missouri will hold their 80th Reunion on 3rd Sunday September 21, 2014 in Mt Vernon, MO at 822 W. Mt Vernon Blvd, Mt Vernon, Mo. The address is the Mt Vernon Arts & Recreation Center (MARC) where the 79th Reunion was held Sunday September 15, 2013 with great success.
Samuel Moseley Hewlett moved to Barry County in 1839 with his 3d wife Abigail Smith, a sister to Mrs Leonard (Elizabeth) Cagle. When it was learned in 1946, the 2 wives of Samuel Hewlett Sr and Leonard Cagle were sisters, common family ties expanded the reunion of 4 families to 12 families as it was learned other area families were allied as well to the Boucher, Bright, Cagle, Hewlett, Mann, Moody, Morris, Pruitt, Spilman, Woods, Wormington families. Thus the 12 families came together as one in September 1947 and have enjoyed family ties, long friendships and good food since.
There will be a Saturday afternoon meeting for 4 hours, if interested parties want to meet to exchange, copy family photos and histories at the Mt Vernon Library. Please contact Jean for times.
