Our Family Reunion List
Welcome to The
Roberts, Campbell, and Moorehead Family Website
Looking at the below family reunion list, are you able to identify all the reunions you have attended? Naturally, it is impossible to visit all of them, read them. Everyone's presence is very important to us.
Do you have all of the reunion tee shirts?
What year did we introduce the first reunion tee shirt?
From the early 1970’s until 1986, we always met at a park (mostly, Lincoln Park) in Milwaukee, WI.
In 1986, Daniel Williams Campbell, Sr. attended our family gathering, held at ??. Family members promised him they would visit his hometown the following year. So-o-o, in 1987, family members traveled to St. Louis, MO.
The 1987 family gathering marked the start of family members traveling around the country to bond together, share memories, and to celebrate our common ancestry.
In 1988, family members from our home state of Arkansas informed Milwaukee family members that they wanted to have a reunion in Little Rock, AR. Wow, wow; everyone had a great time, even though it was hot and humid. We all meet at the home of Charles (Bubba) & Ella Jones, with a big, big yard.
Look at the family reunion list. Was it the 1990 reunion, in Chicago, that we had our first "formal" dinner and program function?
The dinner and program took place on a Friday evening, in a cool hotel banquet hall. Chicago "put on" a great program; and, everyone dressed-up beautifully. Then, on Saturday as customary, we meet at a park for our picnic.
Since 1990, all reunions have had a program component. Let's keep up the great work.
Can you look at the family reunion list and identify the first year that we started our reunions on Thursdays? Wouldn't you say that 1992 was the year we started on Thursdays? If you travel all the way to beautiful California, it makes sense that you would want to leave a day earlier than usual.
This reunion list shows over 23 years of hosting reunions in various locations. We indeed have a great tradition. Now, it is up to the younger generation to step-in; and, to keep up the tradition.

2014 Where do we go? We are now making decisions, at least three-years-out, on locations for up-coming reunions. Would you like to see your City/State on this family reunion list? You can make your request to host a reunion during our Thursday night Steering Committee meeting.
However, before you can host a reunion (or another reunion), you or a representative must attend at least two consecutive committee meetings.
We'll see you there!
