The Pobst & Richardson Family of Virginia Updated June 16, 2006
About Our Family Research
On 24 Oct 1894 James Colon Richardson married Adra Lillie Pobst at the Pobst home in Cloverdale, Botetourt County Virginis. I have been doing research on these families since 1965. In 1971, my cousin, Katie Pobst Hallock Westman said she and her husband were coming from Hemet, CA to Virginia and she wanted to see all the relatives. I thought a REUNION would be the best way for her to see the relatives. We had our first reunion Sunday, May 30, 1971, with 99 people in attence. We decided to have a reunion the folllowing year, and the next year. It grew into an every year get-together. After about five years we decided to make it a Pobst-Richardson Reunion.
