 In August 2008, we held our Kathan Family Reunion in beautiful Lake George, NY near the site of Fort William Henry. We chose this location to co-inside with the 250 year celebration of the Battle of Lake George.
 
 
Capt. John Kathan, fought in the battle of Lake George on Sept. 8, 1755, during the French and Indian War. According to a history of the town of Northfield, Mass., John Kathan enlisted in the Northfield militia to be a part of an expedition to take Crown Point. They never made it, but fought battles at Lake George and built Fort William Henry, which in turn was bombarded and destroyed in 1757. The fort was rebuilt about 50 years ago and is one of the focal points for the 250th anniversary.
