Weimar & Margaret (Rafferty) Siler Branch

The Siler Family Meeting

The very first family meeting took place in 1853.  The family has met every single year since then, with no interruptions.  As far as we know, the Siler Family Meeting in Franklin, NC is the longest running family reunion in the United States.

Minutes of the early Siler Family Meetings

Click on the link below to read excerpts of minutes from the very early Family Meetings, including the years 1861-1865. 

The minutes were transcribed in 2006 by MaryAnn Sloan from copies of the original minute book.  On behalf of the family, we thank MaryAnn for graciously submitting her work to us for use on the website.


Thanks to Patricia Smith Levasseur (Jesse Branch), you can now read
the entire booklet produced by the Siler Family for the Jubilee Reunion
in 1901.  This issue of the booklet contains 1926 added material.

Note to researchers:  The family information presented in the booklet is largely information handed down through the generations and not attributed to specific sources. Independent verification of facts is recommended.
