The 65th Robert and Ann Bellinger Arthur Family Reunion was held Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Old Arthur Homestead in Remsen.
There were 38 relatives and one guest from Germany. The oldest person attending was Isabel Arthur, age 97. The youngest was her great-granddaughter, 9-month-old Hannah Mae Grace McChesney. Jean Arthur and her husband, Steve Allen traveled the farthest, from Costa Rica.
The meeting was brought to order by President Chester Arthur Jr. He traced the history of the farm and grounds. The minutes from last year were read by Debi Arthur. The treasurer’s report was given by Janet Martin. Gregory Mazzatti, who recently graduated from a Boston University course in genealogy, and who now holds a certificate, shared items and historic research that he has found out about the family. The officers for next year are: Janet Arthur Martin, president and treasurer, and Debi Arthur, secretary.
