2024 is the year of the 70th Picton Reunion. Please plan to attend on the scheduled date of Sunday, August 4, 2024. It had been planned at the Carwell Building on the grounds of the Brown County Ag Museum, 301 E. Iowa, Hiawatha, KS (from Highway 73, turn east at Iowa Street; the Carwell Building will be on the right, about 1/2 mile from the corner). We will meet for a potluck dinner at 12:30 P.M. Drinks, plates, eating Utensils and napkins will be provided. Swimming is available at the Hiawatha City Pool next door. Please provide a record of births, marriages and deaths to be entered into the minutes. Family Reunion History for Descendants of Stephen and Eliza Picton

We hope that you can join us for the Picton Reunion in 2024. Marian S. Tubach appreciates the many email addresses received and will send notices to as many as possible that way. Often people don't think to update addresses for the Pictons Reunion when they move. Many invitations come back as undeliverables. Please pass this information along to family members since we have lost touch with some. Please keep a record of births, marriages and deaths to be entered into the minutes at the reunion.

The Picton Reunion is normally scheduled on even years on the first Sunday in August

at Hiawatha, Kansas, USA

2015 was the Bicentenary of the Success and Death

of

at the

Battle of Waterloo

He distinguished himself and died June 18, 1815 helping defeat Napoleon while fighting under the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. His body was brought to London in a keg of whisky. He first was buried at St. George's, Hanover Square and later reburied at St. Paul's Cathedral. Folklore has him riding out and fighting the Battle of Waterloo in either tuxedo suit of tails and top hat or his night shirt and top hat because either his luggage had not arrived or he had overslept. I can not prove that I am related to him but both he and my ancestors came from Pembrokeshire, Wales.
