John Davis and Ratha Ann Adams Family Reunions

How fortunate for the descendants of John William Davis and Ratha Adams that their families have cared enough to publish their history and continue to hold reunions.  My own connection to this family is thru William Morlan (1821-1878), my great-great-grandfather.  William was the great-grandfather to Ratha; Ratha's grandmother was Mary Abigail Morlan (1842-1880).  By the way,  I've never been invited to any of the reunions hint hint.  :-)  Reunion articles have been very helpful in identifying family and their location.

(Appanoose County, Iowa is very fortunate; they have published the Iowegian on line for free!  The link is: http://centerville.advantage-preservation.com/search/site )

Here is a family history that appeared in the Centerville (Iowa) Iowegian followed by all the announcements I have found regarding the reunions.  (As I continue to find more announcements, this will grow).
