The family lineage has been traced back to the Heath Plantation in Talbotton, Georgia which is located in Talbot County.
These humble beginnings are where Jack Heath and Jennie Adams married and their holy union brought forth eight blessings.
8 blessings from Jack & Jennie's holy union.
When Jack and Jennie both passed away, relatively early in life, their oldest daughter, Lector, bared the responsibility of raising her siblings. Albert Smith and Willie Smith were brothers that married two Heath sisters. Angel Bell Pittman and Buddy Pittman were sister and brother that married Heath siblings. These marital unions planted the Heath, Pittman, & Smith seed. As their roots grew, the branches later formed this family reunion.
The first reunion began in the home of Mary Alice Hill in 1967 along with Fannie Heath, Willie Pittman, and the following 34 attendees:
Essie Heath Bell, Loyd Bell, Mozell Brown, Deborah Burks, Joyce Burks, Lester C. Burks, Frances Harris, Angel Heath, Carol Heath, Diane Heath, Eunice Heath, Homer Heath, Josephine Heath, Lonnie Heath, Luci Heath, Marvin Heath, Robert Heath, Shelia Heath, Shirley Heath, Raymond Hill, Jenny Maddox, Diane Mays, Luella Mays, Otis Mays, David Pittman, Lawrence Pittman, Myrtic Steward, Mildred Heath Taylor, Willie Taylor, Ann Bell Towns, Willie Williams
