reunion of descendants in Tasmania 2022
This page is all about the reunion which I was not able to attend but, thanks to Cameron Richards,
I have all the information which I can put on this page. The event was an opportunity to share key stories, existing information,
and new developments from many active family historians and genealogists.
More than 50 people attended the gathering which showcased a plethora of interesting information and stories. Cameron wrote of the
extended family of Kennedy Murray with 58 grandchildren - plus Kennedy Murray the second's siblings via Ann White's
second family of another 37 nephews and nieces who were all based in Evandale in the 1830's.
Above is a photograph, taken by Cameron's sister, Fiona, of the lucky people who attended the reunion.
The Kennedy Murray descendants gathering was held on April 2 2022 at the Longford RSL Memorial Hall at Longford near Evandale.
