DUVAL FAMILY REUNION ELECTS NASHVILLIAN AS NATIONAL LEADER
Descendants of Samuel DuVal, Revolutionary soldier of Huguenot descent, held a reunion last Saturday, in the dining-room of McKendree Methodist Church for the purpose of organizing a family association. McKendree Church was chosen as a meeting place in recognition of the sentiment attached to the memory of a member of the family, the Rev. James Gwin, an early pastor of the church who also served as Andrew Jackson's army chaplain.
Greetings from the members of the family living in Nashville were extended by Lee Baskette and Robert DuVal of Springfield, Tenn. gave the response. Mrs. Margaret Buchanan of Richmond, Ky., gave a short talk on Samuel DuVal and his plantation, Mt. Comfort, VA., now Chestnut Hill and Highland Park sections in Richmond,Va.
The 1937 reunion will be held at Franklin, Ky., the last Sunday in August.
