The 2010 Reunion has been scheduled for Saturday, June 26, 2010, at New Garden Meeting in Greensboro, across the road from Guilford College. We will be meeting in the fellowship room on the back side of the building. We will gather at 12 PM for a covered-dish lunch.

Benbow Family Reunion 1927
Benbow Family Reunion 1927
Taken from "Winston-Salem Journal," September 25, 1927. Unfortunately, the Scotch tape that joined the two pages together darkened and obscures part of the photograph. I have uploaded a higher resolution of this photo, to compensate for the poor quality. I will transcribe the newspaper story about the family history at some point in the near future, but there are a number of inaccuracies in it, and it should not be relied upon to be true in all details.
