DuBois Family Association Website - Welcome
DuBois Family Reunion
October 19-20, 2013
The DuBois Family Biennial Reunion brought together thirty cousins for a Friday
evening reception and a busy Saturday. Friday evening we enjoyed wine and cheese
and a sharing of family memories. Saturday, we began the day with a church
service with the Reverend William Schnitzer as pastor and Sally DuBois at the
harpsichord. Then there were house tours given by well informed guides. Right
after an excellent luncheon, we heard Ms. Mary Etta Schneider, Chairperson of
the HHS Board of Directors, discuss changes and new directions. Mid-afternoon,
we went into a planning session and ended the day with a business meeting.

Eleven of the families moved to the area following the purchase of nearly
40,000 acres, along the Wallkill River, from the Esopus Indians.
