History of the Association

The current series of Family Reunions began in 1970 with leadership of three Broxsons and two Andersons. The reunion was begun to bring together descendants of Angus L. Anderson and Thomas G. Broxson at least once a year.

Soon after the Reunion began, Byron Ray proposed a plan for the creation of a Perpetual Memorial Trust to fund upkeep of the cemetery at Pleasant Grove. The initial goal for trust funding was $20,000. That was a goal-not a limit. We have continued to overcome the effect of inflation by adding to our capital.

Under the trust covenant, all annual interest income generated from your gifts to the fund are contributed as a designated offering from the Reunion to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church for upkeep of the church cemetery. The stewardship of the church in using your trust gift is visible in the manicured appearance of the cemetery. Your continued dedication to this family memorial is appreciated.

You are encouraged to discuss your interest in contributing to the fund for preserving and caring for the cemetery with any officer or director.
