The 75th annual Shaver Family Reunion was held June 12, 2011 at the Bowman United Church in Ancaster. This was the first year in some time that the reunion was held there, but we understand it may have been at Bowman some time in the past. Certainly the church is a long-standing Ancaster fixture.

We received correspondence (see below) from Eleanor Burke of Collingwood, ON in November of 2010. Eleanor tells us of a fascinating trip she took with the National Geographic in February 2010 to the Antarctic. Eleanor descends from William’s Margaret. Her grandmother Louise Bedell, and great aunt and uncle, Edward and Daisey Lyons attended the first reunion in 1937.

Since a snowy February we have been organizing a web site for the family members of the Shavers of Ancaster. As of this moment the site has gone live. The site is open to the general pubic. However, if you are a descendant of John Shaver (1739-1795) you are welcome to request an account to the site so you can share information and interact with other members. Use the link in the left navigation panel “Create new account” to do just that.
