There were about 50 people in attendance consisting of 46 cousins, two conservation officers (Eddie Pittman's friends) and two media from the Choctaw Sun. They came from Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. They came from Choctaw, Mobile, Baldwin, Madison, Marshall, and Sumter Counties in Alabama. All of the siblings that married and had families were represented.
William Henry was represented by Mason Young and wife, Flo, from Tulsa, OK. They are the ones that traveled the farthest. Henderson and wife, Nita, represented Toulmin (Tobe). Mary Olivia's daughter, Lillie Mae Jackson and others represented her. Lillie Mae had four generations in attendance. Lena was represented by Bill Wimberly and Karla Mosley. Lola was represented by Clara and Buck Ozment and a host of others including some 12 from Verth's family. Brenda Doucet and others represented James Osburn.
Brenda Doucet did a superb job of coordinating the food. Our chefs Kenny Mosley assisted by Randy Adams were at their best at the BBQ grill.
At age 86 Buck Ozment, who is married to Lola Young Gibson's daughter, Clara, was the oldest. At 18 months Allee' was the youngest. She is four generations removed from James Osborne Young (William Young, Wiley Young, Sarah Rolison)
