The Abendschone Chapter NSDAR celebrated its 65th anniversary at its December 8, 2016 meeting.

The meeting was held at the downtown Cornerstone Bank with John Cross as the featured speaker. Cross’ grandmother, May Obenshain Fuller, was a founding member (along with other family members), and his mother, Ruth Fuller Cross, was a member for 57 years. The chapter was named after Reinhold Abendschone, the Revolutionary War ancestor of the Cross/Fuller family.
