ENGELKING 2013 REUNION and CEMETERY DEDICATION – March 23, 2013
The 18th reunion of the descendants of Ferdinand Engelking and Caroline (von Roeder) Engelking took place March 23, 2013.
Engelking Family Crest
Approximately 75 people met on March 23, 2013, for the 18th reunion of the descendants of Ferdinand and Caroline Engelking. There were a few non-Engelking Sack cousins in the mix, but by far and away, most of the people there were descended from Ferdinand and Caroline. This year’s reunion was particularly memorable because the family also had a dedication for the historic Engelking family cemetery.
Cousin Tom Bickham is the chair of the descendants group. He was instrumental in cleaning up the cemetery for the event, and as far as the cemetery goes, Tom is the family muscle man. John Engelking is the vice chair and Marian Engelking Douglas is the treasurer. But the true organizer/coordinator of the reunion was Cousin Charlotte Hill. The family is fortunate to have Charlotte as she has coordinated not only this reunion but the larger Sack Family USA reunions as well.
