2010 Felton Reunion – Peabody, Massachusetts

From Cora Felton Anderson, of the Felton Family Association:

The annual gathering of Felton descendants will be held on the 31 of July and 1st of August, 2010 at the site of the old houses of our ancestors in Peabody, Massachusetts. The area is now called 'Brooksby', but in the past it was known as Hog Hill or the Felton farm area of Salem, now Peabody, Massachusetts.

As many of you will know, this was what had been called the "Outer Village" of Salem during the early days of the colony in the 1630's. Our Nathaniel was appointed by Gov; Endicott to clear a place on the hill that could be used to signal the town of Salem below, in case of Indian attack.

We meet every year at the old houses which are said to be the "oldest set" of Father and son houses on the same property in the U.S. We come from all over the United States to honor our ancestors and learn of our heritage. Anyone who has a Felton ancestor in the background is most welcome to join with us at the gathering, as well as the Felton Family Association.

If you would like to join us there, please let me know so that we will have enough food for everyone.

Cora Felton Anderson,
We look forward to seeing you there.
