BOWDOIN – The 16th annual reunion of the family of William and Eunice (Jordan) Bickford was held at the Bowdoin Community Center on Sept. 19. A business meeting was held after a potluck dinner.

During the meeting historian Jayne Bickford read a special tribute to Florence (Bickford) Hastings, who celebrated her 100th birthday on Aug. 26.

Elected as 2005 reunion officers were: president, Jane (Footer) Cole; treasurer, Erik Bartlett; secretary, Marcel Mathieu; and historian, Julie Footer.

Revolutionary soldier William Bickford has countless descendants, and family feels would be gratifying to have a larger number of them at the annual Bickford reunions. Female descendants through marriage have added such names as Bartlett, Bancroft, Footer, Goddard, Murphy, Packard, Temple, Morton and Gamble. Anyone who thinks they may be a descendant should contact Jayne Bickford at 353-2680 for assistance.
