A Gathering of Grebings

Once again, I am not able to research a new story today, so I will share an old one. About a week ago, the Grebing Reunion took place in East Perry County. This story was posted back in 2017 when a previous reunion took place. I will add that a map of Altenburg shown in this post gives an answer to the question posed in a post several days ago about a parcel of land willed to Trinity Lutheran Church in Altenburg by Amalia (Grebing) Kluegel. The will mentioned that the land was near the creamery. That was likely part of the Grebing land shown in the map and would explain how the church became the owners of what would become the fairgrounds. FYI: The church no longer owns the fairgrounds.
