3rd Annual Crotts Family Reunion

Received notice today of the next Crotts Reunion sent to me by Tim Crotts (tcrotts001@carolina.rr.com).

October 24, 2015 at 12 noon
at St. Paul Baptist Church, 337 Hull Road, Casar, NC

Once again, our family will get together at St. Paul Baptist Church in Casar for our annual Crotts family reunion. This is where a number of Crotts’ who lived and farmed in the 1800’s and last century in Cleveland County attended church and are buried. In fact, this community encompasses the area just south of Casar located on Crooked Run Creek (about 2 miles away) where our ancestor Valentine Crotts settled in the late 1700’s, and the Crotts family cemetery remains today.

The date is Saturday, October 24th. The event will be in the Fellowship Hall and we plan to eat around noon. We are asking that each family bring a covered dish or two (pot luck) to share with everyone.Drinks, plates and silverware will be provided.

Any one that would like to come early to browse around the cemetery is welcome. Someone will have the fellowship hall open by 10:30 am. After the meal and a time of fellowship, anyone that would like to can go on a “field trip” to visit the Crotts Family Cemetery, which is located on a farm nearby. The property is owned by the Floyd Williams family, who most graciously watch over our family’s resting places. There are about 20 to 30 graves located at this site, which I feel confident includes Valentine Crotts, his wife and their descendants.

In addition, we will have a “memory table” and if you would like, please bring old photos and family heirlooms to share with other family members.

Everybody is welcome to attend the church service the next day at St. Paul, which starts at 11:00 a.m. There’s also a Sunday evening service at 6:00 pm. The Crotts family could sit together and be recognized at that time.

Look forward to seeing you!!! If you have questions, please feel free to contact Tim Crotts at 704-692-3201 or tcrotts001@carolina.rr.com
