Now hear this

For reasons on which I’m not entirely clear, I’ve been invited to speak to the Peden Family Reunion this July. One of my direct but distant forebears, one John Alexander, married into the Peden clan just in time to join close to two dozen of his in-laws in throwing off the yoke of British tyranny. My great-grandfather, the first Hooper Alexander, spoke at the first Peden Reunion, in 1899. My father spoke at the 1999 reunion. I guess they’re going for the trifecta. I’m hardly an authority on family history, so that’s why I’m not clear on why I’ve been invited (speakers tend to talk about various aspects of Peden family history), but it’s a nice get-together nonetheless.
