This year the Higdon Family Association had its annual meeting in Elkins, WV, during August 6-9th. Twenty plus people gathered at the Holiday Inn Express to renew friendships and meet new members, who caught up on their lives over the last year and to discuss genealogy. President Barbara Tedford and her able husband and assistant, Sidney Tedford, planned and implemented a wonderful gathering.
Barbara and Sidney live in a wonderful Victorian style home, that was once the carriage house for the original estate. The house sits on the top of a hill and is beautiful. The picture shows Barbara standing in front of her house. The inside of the home is intriguing with its gables, towers, curved staircase and really great functional kitchen. Barbara and Sidney have a neat breakfast niche that looks outdoors to the flora and fauna that inhabits this West Virginia hideaway.
The drive to their home is an exciting adventure in turnpin curves that have homes appearing as you make the turns. Sidney had created a very tasty spread of dips, crackers, and cocktails for those that were available on Wednesday evening. The food was good and the welcome and fellowship fascinating.
