About  The Caughel Family

Hello fellow relatives! 

This page is a work in progress as I research our family in my spare time. I started my genealogy research in 2000 and started building this site in 2006 (not 2010 as it says above). Many relatives helped gather this information.

The list of names in our family tree is below. Click on a name to see the information. Each page has another link to click on to see the next branch of the tree. If you look at each person's photos, you will also see documents (census records, births, deaths, news articles, etc.) It may take some time to get used to the website or app. 

*We have now confirmed that the Caughel Reunion began on July 4th, 1956. *

Historical locations of the reunion:

The first location of the Caughel Reunion, held in 1956 and likely also in 1957 and 1958, was at Grandpa John and Grandma Maude's farm on Marlette Road. Several ancestors personally recounted to me that the event began at their house.

In 1959, the second location for the Caughel Reunion was at the residence of Uncle Willard and Aunt Mary, located in Jeddo, Michigan.

The third location for the Caughel Reunion, spanning from 1960 until the late 60s, was Yale Park in Yale, Michigan.

The fourth location for the Caughel Reunion, from at least 1969 until the late 1970s, was Goodells Park in Goodells, Michigan. It should be noted that during that time, only the south side of the park existed.

The Senior Center in Flynn Township Park, Michigan, has been the chosen spot for the Caughel Reunion since the late 1970s up until now. It's the fifth (and current) location used annually. 

For a long time at Flynn Township Park, there was just the old building near the woods that was used. No air conditioning, but occasionally, with fans. There were separate outhouses for men and women. The venue currently utilized for the Caughel Reunion was previously the location of an old baseball diamond. Personally, I can remember Uncle Charlie (born 1931) being quite a baseball (softball) player. I also remember Jerry (Gerald) Steinmann hitting balls all the way out into the playground from the north property line (home plate). 

I could always add more pictures or documents. Please contact me by email or phone and we will figure out the best way to get them to me.

Some things might surprise you on this page!! You may learn something new or merely reminisce about the family...but either way...enjoy!
