|Dear John Pack Family Descendants,|
What a wonderful reunion we had in August! Congrats to Gary Pack on pulling on the parts together. Margie Grider our Facebook manager showed us around the John Pack Home with ease.
Tracy Carr and Gary Pack’s children managed the online broadcast. Diane Quist and Gary Pack provided our lunches with creamies to end. Our program was amazing, focusing on Eliza Jane Graham.
Brian Stutzman provided history on her involvement at the trial after the murder of Joseph Smith and Hyrum Smith. Nancy Potter, a descendant of Eliza gave insight to her life after leaving Nauvoo, and John Pack. Of course we sang the Alphabet Kids song and shared a few other stories about Nancy Booth and John. Thanks to Andi Zorn for managing the finance for the event.
Now it is time to move forward! We want to welcome all descendants of John Pack and his wives to continue to gather together. How many current descendants are living? Help us know. Join the Facebook groups and talk to each other. As we turn to our ancestry, may we seek out those not yet found. Let’s learn about their lives, gather stories, documents and the historical events they lived in.
TheGenealogy Committee under President Kathleen Skinner will meet soon to discuss our future projects. We would like to see a re-start of our DNA project to connect us firmly to New Jersey and across to England. We also have the 1750 gravestone of Job Pack, Elizabeth, and son John to replace in the Rahway Cemetery, New Jersey. Our shared Pack lines of Buckhout, Marsh and Greene could use some work, too. I invite anyone interested to join a Committee.
Committee Needs: Technology with the websites and DNA gathering. DNA Project manager, Newsletter Editor, Reunion 2023 planning, Helpers under the Vice Presidents including Facebook, Ancestral researchers . Lucy Janes GILES and Jessie Belle STIRLING VP’s.
