September 16-18, 2010
|The CFA was featured in the Hampton Daily Press in two articles by Sam McDonald on successive weekends:
The 2010 annual meeting of the CFA was September 16-18 in Hampton, Virginia. This meeting was three days instead of the usual two because of special events planned to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival in Virginia of John Chandler born 1600.
The ancestor of many CFA members, John Chandler came to Jamestown in 1610 at the age of 9. As an adult, he owned thousands of acres of property and made his home in what is now Hampton.
Thursday, September 16, was filled with tours of Historic Jamestown and Jamestown Settlement. See Thursday’s photos.
On Thursday night, many of us gathered for dinner at Crab Shack on the James. See dinner photos.
Friday, September 17, and the morning of Saturday, September 18, were times for researching, sharing and making cousin connections. Our annual business meeting was also held on Saturday morning. See sharing/meeting photos.
Saturday afternoon’s tour was of historic and Chandler-related sites in Hampton and the immediate area. See Saturday’s tour photos.
