The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE -

An i nter­est­ing pro­gram, cen­ter­ing around the lives of 11 fam­ily mem­bers and their sur­vivors, was pre­sented dur­ing the 32nd an­nual Forsyth Re­union.

The fea­tured group i ncluded Wil­liam Hugh Shep­ard, Joe Allen Mor­ris, Irene White Forsyth, Roger Joe Bone, Perry Bone, Travis C. Tant, Jen­nifer Hicks Pot­ter, Deane Fen­nell Coff­man, Dorothy Hayes, Tom W. Clark, and Ruby Tant Oliver.

Friend­ship Bap­tist Church, Braswell Moun­tain Road in Pauld­ing County, was the meet­ing place of the de­scen­dents of Eli­jah Rose Forsyth. He was one of the founders of the church, which is lo­cated in a wooded area off Braswell Moun­tain Road. It has a well­main­tained ceme­tery and plenty of park­ing spa­ces.

Dur­ing the event, Ken­neth Forsyth was re- elected pres­i­dent.

Daugh­ters of Ar­lin Dou­glas Forsyth of Rockmart pre­sented the pro­gram. They used charts of “work- ing tools” to de­pict phases of his life.

Pic­nic ta­bles were laden by food, and the Rev. Ralph Bobo led in a thanks­giv­ing bless­ing. There­after, fam­ily mem­bers spent time in fel­low­ship.
