I am the great grandaughter of O.M. DeShane and Phebe Ellen Wainscott. Her mother was the sister to Rebecca Boone. They married Wainscott brothers
The DeShane family reunion will be held June 10,11&12th 2005 in Moab Utah. A basic run down goes like this: Aaron,Eli,Levi,Enoch,O.M.,Robert Lee. We hope that all the "cousins" show up.
I hope you will be able to provide me with more e-mail addresses,mailing addresses and to help me spread the word to all of your contacts. Please forward this to anyone who may be interested.
My mother, Joyce DeShane Costanza has three living brothers & sisters. Keith, Patricia & Fineva. They all live in Oklahoma.
We would like to start working on collecting individual family histories, including the living generations, ASAP. Any photos,lineage,recipes & or other info can be sent by mail or e-mail. They will be put together in book / cd form. Then given out at the reunion, mail, & e-mail.
Here are a few things we would like to have at the reunion. DeShane Cookbook Memorial Tribute Speaker on our Indian heritage (at the very least, to be included in book / cd) Speaker on the Boone connection (at the very least, to be included in book / cd) The old city park is reserved for Sat. the 11th. Speakers, Meet & Greet, Games, Food, etc. Maybe, an evening at the Bar M on the 11th? Sunday the 12th, a pot luck picnic in the La Sals. If enough interest, Rick will lead a golf outing on Friday the 10th.
We know Moab is hard to get to but it is worth the trip!There is so much to do around the area that family members that aren't excited by the reunion will have plenty to keep them busy. There are many web sites about Moab but a good one to start with is: www.discovermoab.comIt doesn't contain advertising. I will try and get discounts at various motels, etc.I can also have Moab packets mailed to those who wish them.
Suggestions are always welcomed. Thanks for your help.
