     On 23-24 June 2017, the 15th annual TOLLIVER family reunion will take place at the Carl D. Perkins Community Center, located on Route 32/ Flemingsburg Road in Morehead, Kentucky. All descendants of the five TOLLIVER/TOLIVER brothers who were in North Carolina in the 1700s are invited to attend. Individuals who hope to attend are encouraged to bring old family photographs or interesting family mementoes to share with relatives as well as family recipes for inclusion in a planned cookbook.

     In addition to the opportunity to meet new kinfolks and exchange genealogical information, people at the reunion will enjoy a game of bingo, a potluck lunch, a silent auction, and a talent-hobby show. Activities for children are also scheduled. A printed tour guide will be available for those who would like to visit some Tolliver family sites, such as the Jacob Finley Tolliver cemetery.
