Mike Cobb was a wonderful speaker. He was head of the Hampton Museum, recently retired, and Suzanne Hamilton was able to entice him to come speak with us about Montague heritage in Hampton.

– SAFE TRAVELS TO ALL MONTAGUE FAMILIES –

As was the case with previous reunions people can pick and choose what events they want to see. Since the reunion was in the same area in 2010 many family members might not want to visit the same cemeteries as we saw last time. This is perfectly fine. We want everybody to have a great time at this reunion There are many activities in the area to enjoy. There will be some activities, such as the banquet, that we will need a head count, but don’t feel like you are being pressured into attending any of them.

    1. How do I go about becoming a part of the 2015 Montague family reunion? I’m very interested in participating and learning more of my heritage.

      1. Hi: you can e-mail me (Curt Montague) at curt@montaguefamilyassociation.com and I can send you information about registering for the reunion and answer any questions you may have. There is a link to my e-mail address and the other board members in the “About Us” page of this website also. Thanks for asking.
