Our second annual Duke-Stainback Family Reunion will be held on May 25, 2002
(the last Saturday in May), at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Epsom, North
Carolina. It will be a covered-dish event, meaning everyone should bring a
dish for the lunch buffet. To help cover expenses for the reunion, there will
be a voluntary admission charge of $5 per adult - children will be free.
<A HREF="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~stainbackduke/printcemeteries.htm">New Bethel Church</A> has special meaning for our family. Many of our direct and
extended family members are buried in the church cemetery. The nearby area
also has <A HREF="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~stainbackduke/printcemeteries.htm">several other cemeteries</A> where members of the extended family are
buried. An interesting side excursion for those of you with the time is Duke
University, about an hour's drive away, where cousin <A HREF="file:///C:/FrontPageWebs/Content/Stainback-Duke/GWDukefamilyAlbum.htm">Washington Duke</A> and
several other members of his family are buried.
The reunion will start at 10am, with donuts and coffee or juice. Lunch will
start at 12:30pm, and the program will start after lunch, at approximately 2
We plan to have speakers knowledgeable about the Stainbacks, Dukes, allied
families and local genealogy research. We also plan to have a computer,
scanner and printer so that we'll be able to share photos and genealogy
files. We hope to have lots of family/genealogy/local history goodies for you
to take home, as well as door prizes for some lucky people!
Anyone interested in genealogy is welcome to join us.
