Looking Forward to Getting to Know You!

There are so many on the mailing list who’ve never been able to come to the reunion. It would be nice if they would take time to write something about who they are. Here are some suggestions:

  • Where do you live?
  • Whom are you a descendent of; which of the 9 children of Henry Hewitt, Daniel Matheny, Henry Matheny, or which of Isaiah Cooper’s children? If you aren’t sure, give enough clues so we can tell you.
  • What is or was your occupation? Stories about what you do/did in your professional life (e.g. shipyards during WWII, military service in Viet Nam, etc.)
  • What are your hobbies, recreational activities, etc.?

If you don’t like to write about yourself, write about your grandfather, grandmother, or both (but include which is the descendant); or any other living or non-living relative of the family. It’s nice to include pictures.


Another part of the newsletter that is lacking is reports by family members of births, weddings, deaths, military service, college/trade/professional school graduations, and honors earned. To have a good newsletter, everyone in the group has to contribute the news.
