Are You Related to the Corneliuses, Bynums, Murphrees?
Perhaps you are and if you are not you will want to come to Oneonta
on August 6th and see this great gathering of the descendants of these
pioneer families of Blount.
It is said that at least one-fifth of the population of Blount
County are related in some way to one of these families, and some of
them carry in the veins the blood of all three.
And the descendants of these pioneers are not confined to this
county. They are scattered throughout the State. Yes, throughout the
South from the Carolinas to the Rio Grande.
They are coming back to Oneonta on August 6th to mix and mingle
each other where their ancestors pitched their tents in a wilderness
more than a century ago.
It will be a great day for Oneonta and for the descendants of those
who paved the way for civilization in Murphree's Valley
