BOBO Family Reunion


 
Herb & Jeanie NEWELL

 

2005 BOBO Family Reunion Will Be

27-30 May in Tuscaloosa and Fayette, AL

Mrs. Herb NEWELL of Fayette, AL, will be honored at the annual reunion of the BOBO Family Assn. will be 27 to 30 May 2005 in Tuscaloosa and Fayette, AL.  Family members from 13 states are expected to attend.. 

     Many BOBOs from Virginia and South Caroline 1700 and 1800s settled in the Fayette area as the family spread over the United States. Many descendants of the early settlers still reside in Fayette County.

     Mrs. NEWELL and her late husband, Herbert, published one of the early books on the BOBO family, “BOBO…Cousins by the Dozens,” more than 50 years ago.  They also researched and produced several other books on Fayette area genealogy.

     Headquarters for the reunion will be the GuestLodge & Suites in Tuscaloosa, with visits to sites of interest to the family in Fayette.

    Guests will begin arriving in Tuscaloosa on Friday, 27 May, and have an informal supper together that evening.  The program will open on Saturday morning, 28 May, at the Tuscaloosa GuestLodge, with reports on family group activities by Charles H. (Chuck) BOBO, Huntsville, AL, association coordinator; Robert G. (Bob) BOBO, Franklinville, NJ, BOBO Family Tree Database coordinator; and by other family researchers. 

    On Sunday morning, 29 May, Chuck BOBO and Bob BOBO will talk on the Huguenot (Protestant) background of the family in France.  The group will then drive to Fayette for lunch before visiting cemeteries and other sites of interest to the family.

     They will return to Tuscaloosa for an informal dinner together.  Monday, 30 May, is an open day for visiting and other activities.

     BOBO Family members are expected from Alabama, New Jersey, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Ohio, California, South Carolina, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Missouri.
