    If you know of a Peddy Reunion PLEASE let me know.    


      We have had 10 PEDDY Reunions (1996-2005) in Chester Co TN.   I thank Allen & Thelma Peddy and all the Others for all the work that they did to put these Reunions together.       The 2005 PEDDY REUNION was held Saturday, APRIL 30 2005 at the New Friendship Community Center, North (actually NNE) of Henderson TN.   Bring any old Pictures, articles, Obituaries notices, etc that you would like to show the group.      
For more information contact Glen Peddy
Hope to see you at a future PEDDY Reunion.
      Many PEDDY come to the Friendship Baptist Church on the First Sunday of May each year. Their Cemetery is decorated on Saturday, before the First Sunday of May each year.

      We have had a Peddy Reunion in Chester County Tennessee for the last several years. It is held on the Saturday BEFORE the 1st Sunday in May at the New Friendship Community Center which is across the road from the New Friendship Church & Cemetery.       Andrew Peddy 1848 - 1923 and many of his descendants are buried in this cemetery.     The New Friendship Community Center is the old two room school building - grades 1 - 8, with a stage where I first attended school.
      This weekend is DECORATION DAY / MEMORIAL DAY for the Church and Cemetery. Many years ago when the Friendship Church only met once a month for Preaching it was on the 1st Sunday of the month and the Pastor had other Churches on the other Sundays and the 5th Sunday was rotated among the 4 churches - thus Friendship Baptist Church had their Memorial Day celebration on the 1st Sunday in May each year.     This tradition continues.   The Church has had a full time Pastor for many years, but Decoration Day is still Saturday before the 1st Sunday in May.
      For more information on the REUNION contact ME       Hope to See you at New Friendship Church and / or Cemetery each year for the Memorial Day Celebration on the 1st Sunday in May and on Saturday before the 1st Sunday in May each year.
