Roderick Family History

Reunion 2001

On Saturday, October 13, 2001, the annual family reunion (in honor of Frederick Roderick) was held in Morganton, North Carolina. I am appreciative to Martha Jump, Richard Lane, Nina Hogan, Carl Reed, and the many others that made my stay so memorable. We met at the downtown community building. About 50 descendants (and others) were in attendance. The food that everyone brought was delicious. The event is normally held on the second weekend in October.

After the meeting, a group of us (I'll supply the names later) went out to the old Roderick family cemetery at old Linville. The site is off a highway about 1/2 mile or so. The last half of the journey is by foot down an old logging trail. The area is heavily wooded and beautiful. It would be impossible to find without a guide.
