Our Roadhouse ancestors always seemed to enjoy a good family get together.
From the poems written in the mid 1920’s, the family of John Mellow and Martha Roadhouse certainly knew how to have a grand time. In 1925 it would have been quite a feat to have family attend from Alberta, Toronto, London and Detroit.
The Roadhouse Reunion held in Toronto in 1935 may have been a more formal affair with dignitaries and official speeches but to have 160 attendees in a time of depression is also amazing. They too must have had a great deal of fun during their baseball games.
Roadhouse descendants today carry on these traditions. Getting together with family from all parts of Canada and the United States is our greatest joy followed by lots of laughter and reminiscing.
