GOV. OLIVER HAZARD PERRY THROCK MORTON DAY

Held in Centerville, Indiana May 15, 2009

Folks, this was a great ceremony and yours truly enjoyed meeting new Throckmortons as well as seeing those well known.  It was an opportunity to hear more of the history of this interesting and accomplished Throckmorton.  I learned, for example that O. P. Morton was one of the original founders of the Republican Party.  Here is the program--which went on time and in an enjoyable manner. Many thanks to Jim Resh of the Dept. of Tourism for organizing this event.  Centerville IN is a charming place and THE place to visit for antiques and appreciate history. Again, Throckmortons say "thank you" to Jim Resh, Centerville, and Wayne County Indiana!
