FIFTH IN A SERIES - As we prepare to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the first annual Minerd Reunion, held in Western Pennsylvania in 1913, these two newspaper clippings provide a fascinating glimpse into that first event. At our upcoming national reunion on July 12-13, 2003, we will celebrate the anniversary of that landmark gathering, as well as the dedication of a US military grave marker for our pioneer and Revolutionary War ancestor, Jacob Minerd Sr, the "father of us all."
