Tour Group at New Providence Church

The 2000 Columbia County reunion was actually held in Union County.  We met on Saturday, June 10 at the Worthington Springs Community Center in Worthington Springs, FL.  It was hosted by the family of Russell Thomas Taylor Junior, grandson of Noah by his second wife Cordelia.  Russell's family made all of the arrangements and the arrangements were very good.

Most of the out-of-towners stayed in Lake City.  The Holiday Inn became the center where locals, as well as out-of -towners congregated.  We had a hospitality room reserved there, and Russell's family stocked it with snacks and beverages.  On Friday evening, the cousins congregated there and hugged, talked, and looked at photos and documents. 

On Saturday, everyone went to the Community Center for the day's events.  About 80 people attended the reunion from the Southeast and as far west as California.  Seven of the eight branches of the Taylor family were represented.  Only George's descendants were absent.  The largest representation, of course, was from Noah's descendants.  Besides the normal visiting at the reunion, a sumptuous catered meal was served by Russell's family, including barbecue beef and fresh vegetables.

A tour back to neighboring Columbia County was held later in the afternoon.  Sites covered included burial sites for Noah, James, and Viney; Viney's house; and the location where Robert lived.  The tour guide document is included here.

On Saturday night we had a marvelous time back at the hospitality room.  A large group gathered filling the evening with animated conversation, great fellowship, and food.
