This One's in the Record Books:
This was our smallest reunion. Bob was hospitalized with chest pains in Salt Lake a couple of days earlier, and was unable to attend. (He's out of the hospital, and doing well; the doctors didn't find anything serious). Bob's youngest son Ken, and his wife Tara and new baby Riley had planned to drive to Denver with Bob, but they stayed behind in Utah. Some other groups were unable to attend due to graduations and other events in their families. Of course, June and Marion have finished their journey on this earth, and are now and always with us in spirit.
But we had a fantastic time! We laughed until our cheeks hurt, had terrific conversations—the usual reminiscing, but also lots of other free-ranging discussions—and we loved each other aplenty.

But most important—an unending stream of talking and hugging.
The Next Reunion:
No decision was made, but there was considerable discussion of having the next one in 2008 instead of waiting our usual two years until 2009.
We talked of holding the next get-together in Salt Lake City, or possibly in the Hamburg, Iowa/Rock Port, Missouri region.
The Adamson Cousins Reunion is for descendants of Joseph Adamson (born about 1795 in Ohio), and their spouses, partners, and generally anyone who wants to spend four great days with us.
We've identified about ninety of Joseph's descendants, and are always looking for more. More than forty of those have attended at least one of our reunions in the past dozen years or so.
If you think you're one of us, and we haven't written to you about the reunions, please contact us! Send email to J. C. Adamson.
