2014 Detmer Family Reunion July 20
Written by thillman

Rising Sun is celebrating its 200th Anniversary this year. The Detmer Family has been a part of that story for 149 of those years. Fred W. and Florentine Detmer along with their children and a nephew arrived in Rising Sun in 1865. They married, had children, helped organize the Rising Sun German Reformed Church and became U.S. Citizens.

From these few brave people who left their homeland for a better life over 800 direct descendants can be numbered. No longer concentrated in Rising Sun, “Detmers” have spread throughout the U.S. and other countries. We have a story to tell!

The reunion will be held on Sunday, July 20, 2014 at 1 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 110 S. Walnut Street, Rising Sun. The gathering will be in the basement social hall. Please bring a covered dish to share. Plates, silverware, cups and drinks will be provided.

Please bring up-to-date information about your family such as: names, births, deaths and marriages. We will be gathering this information to update the extensive Detmer Family Tree. Old family photos are greatly appreciated. A scanner will be onsite so photos can be returned immediately.

“The History of the Detmer Family” written by Don Foss will be available along with other items. If you are unable to attend but have information you would like to submit, or if you have any questions, please contact Susan Detmer Oshnock at 404-863-0806 or by email at soshnock@comcast.net.\
