Boards were provided that showed all of John and Hannah's children and each of their marriages with children. Attendees were asked to record their line back to the child of John and Hannah on the chart. This helped us know who was represented.

This allowed us to determine who descended from whom. It was a great attention grabber and many people spent a pleasant time talking to their cousins (many whom they had never met.)
Many attendees brought life stories and pictures to share. This was just an enjoyable time getting to know one another.
We were excited to announce our announce our new effort - a YouTube Channel called The John and Hannah Knight Libby Family. It can be found at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN_sr85X-ns6q8ndsOd8DqQ
You can subscribe and be told when we add new videos. Currently we have two -
1) Carters of Maine Conversion Story - This tells the story of Hannah's conversion with some new twists.
2) Memorial for Hannah Knight Libby - This highlights the video of the 1941 dedication of the headstone that is on Hannah's grave - which ceremony we recreated today.
Thank you to Layne Carter and his son, Skyler for their efforts on doing these two short videos.
This final image is a chart Layne created to help show all the inner-connections between the Bean family and the Carters that surely led to Dominicus and later Hannah and several more of the kids being converted. The missionaries what came to the door of Hannah's house on July 4, 1834 were not just missionaries but Daniel Bean was actually a relative on multiple levels.
