2003 Reunion in Richmond, Virginia!
The DuVal Family Association held its biennial meeting (and Third Reunion!) June 19-21, 2003 at the Omni Hotel in Richmond, Virginia. Daniel DuVal, was a refugee from France to England. Several years later he immigrated to America, arriving in Virgina in 1701. There he settled in Ware Parish where, it is thought, he was one of the builders of Ware Parish Church.
On Saturday, June 20, 2003 members of the DuVal Family Association boarded the riverboat Annabel Lee for a cruise on the James River.
The descendents of Daniel DuVal returned for a few days in June to Virginia, where their Huguenot ancestor established the family after his arrival in 1701. About sixty members of the DuVal Family representing three of the four lines of descent from Daniel's sons gathered for the third bienniel reunion since the organization was reorganized in 1998.
The weekend's events at the Richmod Omni Hotel began with a genealogy session conducted by DFA Genealogist Joseph Hays. In the registration area DuVal descendents were able to examine detailed genealogy charts, one from each line descending from Daniel's four sons. There have been so many descendents over three centuried that each chart was nearly 20 feet long. At Thursday evening's reception there was much lively conversation as cousins renewed acquaintances or met for the first time.
