43rd annual family reunion held

The 43rd Tilden/Cora/Ingersoll reunion was held Aug. 11 at the South Dayton Playground, hosted by the Robert Ingersoll family.

The blessing was given by Jeff Rupp. It was decided the host family runs the reunion, which had about 40 members present.

Family members from Texas, Rochester, Georgia and local were able to attend. During the reunion, family pictures were taken. Also, a Chinese auction was held with auctioneer Steed Merrill, and games were played hosted by the Robert Ingersoll family. Pat Bromley is still doing family history from 1758-2018, so watch for posting on our Facebook site. There are two sites named the Ingersoll Reunion and Tilden and Cora Ingersoll family. We are going back three generations.
