im not sure if you have the right idea of the old settlers reunion. i dont think you've gotten some information quite right. the old settlers reunion in jacksonville ohio is held from the wednesday before labor day and it ends on labor day after a parade through the town. the only thing is, there aren't hardly any african-americans. its majority of whites. this is what made me think you had the wrong old settlers reunion. there is a jacksonville IL that has one i think. but the thing is there are some Brooks' and Taylor's around here. this festival has been goin on for something like 70-75 years. let me know if you need some more info.
