I must apologize for the delay in posting a new message on this website. After I posted the last message in March, we sold our house and had to pack up and vacate by May 31. We are now at my parents, Joe and Belle Innis, in Paullina, Iowa, until we move into our new house July 1. Please note my new address and phone in the history book.
The last mailing has gone out to those who will be going to Woodward June 25,26 and 27. There are some who will be arriving the 24th. We will miss everyone who is unable to attend but Karin and I will do a follow-up mailing later in the summer that will go out to everyone. At press time for the Innis history book, there were still names and dates coming in that needed to be added. We had 529 family members in the database as of May 16, but we have learned of about a dozen more that have been added. We know that Taylor and Robert's branches are still incomplete but we will continue to work on them until we have everyone included.
We have received a photo from Dorothy Innis Vantine, widow of Doyle Innis, grandson of Milford Taylor. We think it might be of James, father of the 8 brothers. We could be wrong and would like for anyone to help us in identifying him. This photo is in the book.
Once the reunion is over and you have your history book on your shelf, don't think that the project is over. If you come across anything such as stories, photos, documents that pertain to any of the Innises, pass them along so we can share them with everyone.
I will close for now. We are quite anxious to get to Woodward. Only 2 1/2 weeks to go! Drive carefully!
