2017 Meeting Programs
May 4th Program Details
Featured Speaker: Charlie Bryan
"Finding Thomas Blount Littlejohn"
The program for the May 4, 2017 meeting of the Granville County Genealogical Society will be presented by Mr. Charlie Bryan on "Finding Thomas Blount Littlejohn." As the great-great-great grandson of Thomas Blount Littlejohn, Charlie has recently published a book about Thomas and his family. The book, entitled "Finding Thomas Blount Littlejohn", documents his search for the long lost Littlejohn family cemetery, and Thomas Littlejohn's role in the founding and development of Oxford. This is the first book to be written about the Littlejohns that, beyond just names and dates, chronicles this family's role in the early development of North Carolina.
Charlie Bryan grew up in Oxford. He and his wife Carol live in Raleigh, as does their daughter Jennifer, an executive with the State Employees Credit Union. Their son David is an administrator at Saint Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in Manhattan, and also a professional musician. After a twenty-four year career in state government, Charlie now enjoys doing genealogical research. His Scottish ancestors came to Granville County over 250 years ago.
Please join members of the Granville County Genealogical Society in attending this meeting, to be held at 6:30 P.M. on May 4, 2017 in the conference room at the Richard H. Thornton Library in Oxford, N.C. All GCGS meetings are open to the public, and visitors and guests are always cordially invited to attend.
