Galbreath/Mitchell 106th Annual Reunion
My Illinois cousins are having their 106th annual reunion, which is the granddaddy of all reunions. This reunion is open to all descendants of James and Martha Mitchell Galbreath and their parents, William and Phebe Foreman Galbreath and John and Mary Ann Barnes Mitchell.
Saturday, July 14, the family will have a genealogy workshop at the former home of Walter and Elizabeth Galbreath Winkler at 1515 Jackson, Charleston, Illinois from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Local genealogist, David Kent Coy, will be available to help with questions.
Sunday, July 15, Reunion will be held at Walnut Point State Park, north of Oakland, Illinois starting at 11 a.m., Hickory Point Pavilion. There will be a “pitch in meal” with fried chicken and drinks provided (we will pass the hat to cover the costs). All families are asked to bring a side dish or dessert. Afterwards, there will be a business meeting to discuss Mitchell cemetery restoration project and other topics. Please bring with you family yearly updates of marriages, births and deaths. They are hoping to be entertained again by singing the “Ballad of Adam Mitchell,” written by Judy and Bob Mitchell.
*Please note, in the event of a “Heat Warning” for the day of the reunion, it will be moved to the basement of the Ashmore Presbyterian Church.
For any questions, please contact Galbreath Reunion Secretary:
