Netherland Family Reunion

The annual Netherland Family Reunion is scheduled for Sunday, August 30, 2009, in Coxburg, Mississippi. Each year, descendants of William Bailey Netherland and Martha Elizabeth Garrard, and allied family members, including Spencer family cousins, meet in Coxburg near the old family home of the Netherland family of Holmes County, Mississippi. The event is a potluck lunch where family members share their favorite dishes and engage in lively conversation about family happenings during the previous year.

  1. Hi
    I am inquiring as to the relationship of your family to mine. My great grandfather was William M. Netherland. Most of the family lived in Chattnooga, TN around the turn of the century. My mother's maiden name was Netherland, and my mother's family claims the Netherland Inn in Kingsport, TN as part of their heritage. It dates back to pre-civil war and is now a registered historic site. If you are aware of any connection, would you please let me know? Thank you - Polly Booher, Thomasville, GA
