The late Hessie and Jim Stephenson, a West Tennessee farming couple who raised 10 young ’uns, were laid to their eternal rest years ago, but they are not forgotten.
Their surviving children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren gather every year for a week-long family reunion. Most of the gatherings are held at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park, and this past week marked their 40th annual rendezvous.
