2017 Hurdle Hazel Family Reunion
Slavery was abolished in the U.S. in 1865. When you consider how families had been separated for generations until that time, it is a wonder that anyone can trace their roots. For the Hurdle Hazel family we have been blessed from research to know that our family ties connect us to a county in North Carolina called Alamance. We know that six siblings started their lives there, under the roof with their mother and father. But, eventually that family was separated through auction sales and even an escape. Imagine a time of no social media, telephones or the knowledge to read and write. Yet, the astonishing thing is that those siblings told stories to their own families which one day bought their descendants - US! - together many generations later “full circle."
We get to return to this rich history, the birthplace of our family, in 2017. Let's get together and focus on celebrating the people in whose memories we gather. This will be a historic reunion.
