BLOYD FAMILY REUNION??? When my husband and I visited Hancock County
five or six years ago, we were told that the BLOYD family there holds a
family reunion in July. I have since come into contact with a number of
BLOYD family researchers, and have told them about the reunion. Will
someone please send me the date and location of the next BLOYD family
reunion and a contact person's address? You just might get some distant
cousins dropping in!

Edward JENKINS b. abt 1805 in Wales, and Hannah BARBER b. abt 1810 in
Worcestershire, England, came to Nauvoo in the late 1830's via New Orleans
and the Mississippi River. They sent for their son, Charles, in 1843, when
he was twelve. He "stayed through the winter", and then took off on his
own. Nothing is known of him until he appears in Nebraska in 1856. Did
Edward and Hannah have other children? If you are researching this family,
please contact me.

Glines, John and Maria. I am not sure when they came to Nauvoo but Maria
died on a farm near Nauvoo in 1844 and John died there in 1850.
They were Mormons and their son Eric went on to Salt Lake. He probably
lived in Nauvoo for a while. Eric had some cousins that may also have
lived there for awhile.
John is my great great grandfather.
