84. Gotta Love Family History Reunions!

The Horton family had a reunion in 2002 in Summerfield, Ohio, founded by Moses Horton around 1817 or so. David O'Neill and I were the only two attendees descended from Anne Horton and John O'Neill. We had a great time out in a field close to town. Only other family reunion I ever attended was a Bowen get together at Kent, Ohio, a few years later. I recommend them highly; if you ever get a chance, attend one of your family assemblies. You'll be glad you did!

83. Morgan O'Neill House in County Carlow.

   This house owned by Morgan O'Neill in Old Leighlin was built in the mid-1700's. Hugh O'Neill, Morgan's brother and my 4th great-grandfather, along with his family lived here for a time before they left for America ca 1806. [Photocopy not too good a quality]
