This website is for the benefit of the various related members of the Edward Story Vinson and Annie Adela Morris families who gather every other year at Thanksgiving time to renew and rejuvenate precious family ties.

Edward Story Vinson was the eighth of ten children of Ebenezer Calloway Vinson and Martha Crawford Dickson.

Annie Adele Morris was the third of five children of Thomas Henry Morris and Harriet Marinda Singleton.

The descendants of these families include U. S. Representative Carl Vinson, who served fifty years in the House of Representatives, and his great nephew, United States Senator Sam Nunn who served twenty-four years in the U. S. Senate.

The time at the reunions is spent catching up on family news, celebrating the births of new babies and comforting others in the loss of their precious parents, grandparents, aunts, or uncles. In addition, this time is used to enjoy the fellowship of like-minded folks who greatly appreciate the many benefits of this earth and this great country.

The 2007 reunion was held at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel at Jekyll Island, Georgia.. Previous reunions have been held in Savannah, Reynolds Plantation, Callaway Gardens, Veterans State Park on Lake Blackshear near Cordele, Georgia, and Jekyll Island Club Hotel at Jekyll Island, Georgia. At the 2005 reunion we had the great opportunity to talk with Woodie Vaughn who is on a climb of Mount Vinson in Antarctica.

Here are some photographs of the 2005 reunion.

Below are photographs or links to additional photographs of previous reunions.
