The annual Mills reunion was held recently at Fredericktown City Park. The attendees were all descendants of Thomas Benton Mills the only son of David A. Mills. There were approximately 82 descendants in attendance.
The oldest in attendance was Loretta Rose Mills Wilkinson, 90, wife of Lloyd Wilkinson. Loretta is the daughter of Marvin Jesse Mills and Retha Shrum; the granddaughter of Jesse Mills and Sarah Wallis; great-granddaughter of Thomas Benton Mills and Margaret Yount; and great-great granddaughter of David Mills.
David McCutcheon led a prayer of Thanksgiving for our common ancestors and remembrance of those who have passed since our last Reunion, followed by a buffet of food brought by everyone.
