If you are visiting this site for the first time, Welcome! If any of this research can assist you toward learning of your past, Great! Should we be related in some way, it would be nice to hear from you, I always enjoy meeting "long lost" relatives.

This is all of my research in one location, though I do have more "blanks" to fill in. 

Take care everyone and I hope all those whom are "long lost" relatives will let me know you are out there, so you won't be "long lost" anymore! ;)

FAMILY REUNION…..100 years

2013 marks the 100th year of family gatherings for the descendants of Josiah McIntosh, Sr.

In June 1913, Josiah McIntosh, Jr., known as Joe, caring for his 102 year old Father, Josiah McIntosh, Sr., conceived the idea of a "family gathering". Josiah Sr., being a former slave, had seen families destroyed, split up and denied the opportunity of being together. He constantly emphasized to Joe Jr., the importance of family knowing and supporting one another. This emphasis encouraged Joe Jr,. and his wife, Mattie Ruffin McIntosh to call his and her siblings, their families; 14 of their children (some grown-up) and their families to their home in Jefferson, Texas to share in a feast and fellowship. This feast and fellowship began a celebration that has continued for 100 years for the Joe Jr., clan and some of the clan of his siblings.

This year, 2013, the Joe Jr., clan, as our ancestors did that first gathering in 1913, is calling together as "one big family" all descendants of Josiah McIntosh, Sr.

Our family will commemorate the 100th celebration
