Ligon-Inglis clans gather for family reunion at Pennyrile

There’s no place like family! Relatives of Ella (Ligon) and James Melvin Inglis visited Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park from Aug. 3-5 for a family reunion that included more than 50 attendees. Ms. Toni Curtis of Versailles, Kentucky, organized the three-day event, which was attended by six generations of descendants.

Relatives gathered from as near as Dawson Springs to as far as Vacaville and Los Angeles, California, to reconnect and reminisce. The event featured photo slideshows, family artifacts such as an original Dawson Springs school bell, and musical performances by Barry Smiley of Madisonville, Kentucky, and Mel Wyatt of Earlington, Kentucky. A great time was had by all!
