100 Years of Adams Family Annual Reunions in Wilton, Maine
In the year 1877, the Adams Family began to get together to celebrate their family heritage. It was one day a year for descendants of Moses & Martha Adams, young and old, from near and far, to gather together to share an afternoon of socializing, entertainment and reflecting on the year past. For one hundred years, precise recordkeeping was taken by the elected secretary. These papers have survived through the years, and have been digitized and preserved so that you can view them today. They detail the family members who attended these meetings and list marriages, births, as well as loved ones lost during the previous year. You will see who hosted these get-togethers, which songs were sung, and who did the readings. Are your ancestors included within these notes? Click HERE to find out!
The Tradition Continues
The family tradition still continues to this day. On the third Saturday of July at the Reunion Barn in Kineawatha Park, in Wilton, ME, the homestead lands of Moses & Martha Adams . . . descendants from all over will unite . . . however, along with family recipes, cousins now compare notes and photographs, and are armed with electronic equipment to preserve our days, as our ancestors did with just a pen!
