About 85 family members attended the 2022 Heyward family reunion at Rose Hill Plantation, near Yemasee SC, on April 30, 2022. The weather was perfect, the setting was beautiful and the food, brought in by family members, was delicious.
The HFA is grateful to Henry and Mollie Fair for making their property available for the annual reunion. The HFA is also grateful to Henry Fair for explaining some of the complexities of owning such property in this area since the “war of northern aggression”. Also, the attendees are grateful to Henry Fair for making the adjacent plantation, “The Bluff”, available to us, such that we could visit the grave of Nathaniel Heyward (1766 – 1851), the country’s greatest rice planter.
A few pictures from the reunion are shown below.
