Of all the gifts his Maker
has bestowed upon man,
None is more precious than
his ability to love another.
~ The Outer Limits
Each summer a Stoneburner reunion to which all Stoneburner descendants,
whether closely related to us or not, are invited.
It is hosted in Edinburg, Virginia at
Creekside, the oldest home
in town, currently owned
by Ann Stoneburner
Laing. Pictures taken at some of the recent Creekside reunions are available
here for your viewing. If you are a Stoneburner, married to one, or even a friend of one, please
come to our next reunion Sat, 2 Aug 2014. Come afore
noon and bring some food or drink to share.
About the Pictures
Pictures were taken by Walt Stoneburner, Paul Stoneburner or Alan Garies using digital
cameras. They were uploaded onto Paul's computer from whence they were later sent
to this server and cataloged into their current form. Photographs are renamed
from their camera-generated names into "YYMMDD-HHMMx.jpg" format using the camera-recorded
date and time to facilitate directory sorting. We have attempted to keep the photographs
in chronological order, merging images from the various cameras. This technique depends
on the cameras' clocks being in sync which, unfortunately, was not always
the case, especially at the earliest reunions when this complication had not yet been
experienced nor anticipated. So, in some instances, an event is pictured which occurred
prior to the previous photo. This happens when two cameras with out-of-sync clocks were
used. Another consequence of this technique can be seen when two (or more) cameras are
being simultaneously used on opposite ends of the
property, even if their clocks are synchonized. This makes it appear that
the photographer (singular) was running back and forth between pictures!
If you have pictures from older reunions not represented here, please either email
me scanned copies or bring photos to the next reunion where I can scan them.
Higher resolution copies (more pixels for better prints) of many of the older photos are available for the asking. Just send e-mail to Paul giving the names of the photo(s) wanted.

Until 2003, the descendants of Joseph Homer Knapp (1873-1955) of Baxter, Pa. held
a family reunion each summer,
usually in Round Hill, Va. just west of Leesburg. 2002 was the last reunion
to be held in Round Hill as the hosts were retiring to Pennsylvania.

The project was taken over by Paul Stoneburner

contribute. We'd especially like to get scans of some older reunion photos.
