Event description


As the twelfth child of Robert & Sadie Barton, I, along with my family, are delighted to host the 2017 Barton-Elder Family Reunion where we will be taking it back home to uncover, discover, share, and celebrate the Barton-Elder Family's heritage, legacy, love, history and vision.

We have planned a weekend of fun, fellowship, food and of course, the sharing of family history. We will celebrate all branches of the Barton-Elder Family. We hope that you and yours will be able to join us and other family members.

We have reserved a block of rooms so that you can reserve your rooms. Please go to the link below to reserve your room(s)

or call 903-874-7440 (hotel) or 1-877-834-3613 (reservation line) and be sure to provide this information: Group code: BFR - Barton-Elder Family Reunion. The block and negotiated room rates are good until June 30, 2017. But, please reserve your rooms as soon as possible because we reserved a limited number of rooms.

We can't wait until the REUNION. It is going to be a weekend to remember that will be enhanced by your presence.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Pat at 214-371-2910, Robin at 972-816-5226 or La Juana at 214-673-4025. You can also reach us by emailing La Juana at and we will return your inquiry within 24 hours.
