the numbers of Abbotts were growing. They wanted their family to stay close, stay connected, and stay together. So they started an annual Abbott family Reunion. The first one was held at Trappe Pond in Laurel, DE, on August 24, 1958 and 55 Abbott's attended. The Abbott's will on June 23rd of this year celebrate their 50th Reunion. All of the original Abbott's are long gone, but the cousins and their beloved Aunt Catty have kept the group together, honoring Clarence and Addie Abbott's wishes. Milestones like this 50th Annual Reunion are a rare commodity in families today. It is a tribute to their family ties that the Abbott's continue on.
