The 2022 Bicentennial Robbins reunion in Westport, Indiana, was a great success! We had 50 to 60 people attend. There was meeting of new cousins, reunions of long separated cousins, and friends discovering they were cousins of one another. During our program William (“Bill”) Hunter Robbins welcomed family to Decatur County, Greg Robbins discussed the importance of DNA to solving Robbins genealogical brickwalls, and I (Kevin) read a very brief family history. (I had an expanded seven-page history – still quite brief – as a handout; if you weren’t at the reunion and would like a copy, feel free to email me at “mittge @ yahoo.com” – it’s too long to post on here).
The attendees were extremely generous and we collected donations well in excess of the cost of the room rental and photographer, so I will be passing along a donation of $251 to the Decatur County Historical Society in the name of the 2022 Robbins Reunion!
Once it is available I will be sending out the link to the group photo taken by Christina Newby, our photographer. The photo will be available to have prints ordered or to be downloaded if folks would like to save it or print it elsewhere.
Below are some photos from the reunion.
