Reunion 2015

The 19th Engelking Reunion was held on Saturday April 11th 2015 in the Millheim Harmonie Verein Hall. After a barbecue lunch, we visited the Engelking Cemetery. Many of us were staying in the area and were able to meet up in the evening for a party and on the subsequent days.

Apart from our extended family, there were a number of guest visitors such as the historians from the Millheim Literary Circle – William Heaton, Jamie Ellick and Jim Woodrick. The Engelking and von Roeder families paid a key role in the establishment of the area and of Austin County. Some of this is recorded in a supplement to the Bellville Wochenblatt of 1899 which has now been republished by the Literary Circle.
