You are invited to attend the eighth Descendants of Marie Ferree Reunion. Come learn more about our Ferree family history, share genealogy, tour local historical sites, and join in the family fun and fellowship. Reunion
The Descendants of Marie Ferree constitution states there shall be a business meeting at each reunion. At each reunion business meeting, committee members are elected to serve a two year term ending at the next following reunion. We are now accepting nominations for the position of Treasurer. If you would be interested in serving as Treasurer or would like to place a name in nomination, please contact Randy Ferree at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nancy Johnson at email@example.com.
Upon arrival in America, the Ferree family traveled to the Huguenot colony in New Paltz, NY, where they lived while waiting to claim their land grant in Pennsylvania. Some of the original homes from that time are still standing and the grounds are open to visitors and guided tours. For more information on the history of New Paltz and photos of those houses on renowned Huguenot Street, go to the New Paltz Huguenots page on this website.
Donna Jernigan, our Descendants of Marie Ferree Historian/Huguenots, is planning a trip to New Paltz around the time of our next reunion in July 2018. She is extending an invitation to anyone who might be interested to join her for a group visit. For additional information contact Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
