Ph: 901-635-2451. Koonce and realated families come from all over the US. My last reunion was several years ago when it was at Paris Landing State Park, TN. Take your camera! I got a couple of photo's of some NC Koonce which in some way I was related to. Alma Rogers was the coordinator, great person. I am a Hardison. My grandmother was Addie Bertha Koonce, Kinston NC who goes directly back to your Johathan and Alice. Are we from the same tree? By the way Johathan and Alice were killed by Indians in 1723 and only survivor was son George. A daughter and another son were killed also. The whole family came from Germany to England to New Bern area in about 1720, with a number of other settlers. If you have some information to share, I would appreciate it.
