They Are Coming to Kentucky!
What: Golden Family Reunion 22nd year gathering
When: Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29, 2018
Where: Beginning at the Cumberland Inn, Williamsburg, KY at 5:00 PM Friday, April 27, then on Saturday to Golden Creek on the original Stephen Golden & Hannah Helms home lands/family cemetery
The descendents of our family, going all the way back to the year 1725, will begin arriving to meet other family and join in the celebration of the Golden Reunion. Many surnames make up this HUGE family that I have traced back to Wilkes/Lincoln County Georgia. The families scattered into Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Indiana, Illinois and Texas and this was just the real early family members. Now Golden descendents are in every state of the United States. Should you have ties to this family, come out and meet your extended family.
Friday, April 27, 2018 the gathering will begin at 5:00 and end about 9:00 PM. This evening will be a time when we can share our genealogy, pictures, old Bible (Stephen Golden born 1766 s/o Richard Golden’s Bible will be on display), and other family stories etc. Plan to participate!
Saturday, April 28, 2018 the gathering will start by 8:30 AM and last until the last person departs. This will take place on Golden Creek, named after Stephen Golden and the location of where this family had its beginnings in Kentucky. At 11:30 AM we will do the family group picture followed by our noon pot luck meal. The annual auction (all items donated by family) will follow our meal. But WAIT it’s not over yet, several very talented musicians will be on hand to play and sing. Plan to come out and have some fun with your cousins! Bring food to share, a lawn chair and your musical instrument to join in the celebration.
Sunday, April 29, 2018 those staying at Cumberland Inn and all others who would like to join in will meet for breakfast at the Inn and depending on everyone’s schedule we can do more! Let me know what else you would like to do!
