The Vernon Family are planning our second Family Reunion on July 2-4, 2005. The origin of the Vernon Family are Fred & Alice (Irving) Vernon. Of that union were born five children: Norman, Felton, Fred, Dorothy and Osborn, all deceased. The first reunion was held in 2001 on the Vernon property in Roseland, Louisiana at the urging of the only surviving sibling,Dorothy. Dorothy followed her siblings in death on June 12, 2003 at the age of 79. Nineteen children were produced from the Vernon siblings: Felton 2, Dorothy 8, Osborn 9. These grand children produced 42 great grand children. The Vernon Family hopes to keep the family strong and connected by unionized at lease every two years.
