The many individuals who gathered for the Siler Family Meeting in Franklin this year are descendants of the nine children of Weimar and Margaret Siler who were among the first European to settle in Macon County when it was still Cherokee territory. This is the 160th meeting of the group--the oldest reunion of its kind in the nation. The descendants are quick to point out that it's actually happened for 159 years. During the Civil War they met twice one year--one for Union members and one for Confederate members to insure that divided loyalties didn't cause a rift in the family.
