Heywards gathered at the White Hall plantation for their annual reunion on April 29. For those who missed the festivities near Ridgeland, SC, some pictures and notes are posted below.
Here Robin Rawl, HFA treasurer, and Jim Glover, HFA president, register new arrivals. Note the two cardboard boxes: they contain copies of Jim’s newly published 1600-page genealogy magnum opus entitled Colonial Governor William Glover and his Descendants. About a third of those descendants are Heyward cousins.
Dick Ellis, former Heyward Foundation president, tells the gathering about the family’s scholarship fund for local students.
Chow line forms for some delicious food.
