      BRINK REUNIONS FROM NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS

      The Brink Reunion (August 25, 1921)
      Ernst Fredrich William Brink and Anna Maria Dorothea Charlotta Ilsabein, nee Meyer, were both born in Eiksen, Westphalia, Germany in 1790 and 1798 respectively. In their native land they were united inmarriage and moved by the spirit that moved so many they migrated to this country in the year 1845 landing at New Orleans, after 75 days on the Ocean in a sailing vessel. Here they experienced some difficulties and hardships and novelties in a new country with a new language. From New Orleans they took the boat up the Mississippi River to Grand Tower, 25 miles south of Chester, Illinois. Here the Reiver became ice bound and they were detained some time. Under great difficulty anbd hardships they kept from freezing by housing the best they could in the boat and on the banks of the river in the snow. From this point they crossed over land by wagon to Washington County, Illinois arriving in the vicinity of Nashville on Christmas day 1845.
      However the change of climate seemed to have a very unfavorable effect upon their health, for within a year they both passed to the better world. Their remains are resting near the old home.
      The Brink Reunion was held under the trees on this old homestead, wehre Henry Brink now lives. It was a great day of joy and rejoicings, happy meetings and greetings making acquaintances of many relatives who had never met, happy associations and uniting hearts into closer fellowship and love and leaving pleasant memories lingering in the minds of all never be forgotton while life lasts.
      This union was blessed with 10 children, 8 of which survived the parents, two having died earlier in life: Christ, deceased in 1873, William in 1888, Louise in 1904, Fred in 1906, Henry in 1894, Caroline in 1897, John Ernst in 1860, Charles the only surviving member of the family has reached the age of 86 years.
      The union of William and Ilsabein Brink resulted as follows: 10 children, 67 grand children, 162 great grand children and 92 great great grand children making a total of 331. These are grouped under the following families:
      F. E. W. Brinnk 66, Louisa Brink Meyer 62,Christian Brink 44, carolina Brink Hoffman 43, William Brink 43, Charles Brink 31, Henry E. Brink 21, Ernst John Brink 21, A total 331. 58 of thsi number have died and gone on before. These families today are represented by 273 direct living descendants, while the makeup of the entire family including sons-in-law and daughters-in-law is 377.
      The total number present at the reunion was 194 (or more).
      The day was very happily and pleasantly spent, with plenty to satisfy the bodily needs. In making acquaintances and in associating with one another the time passed all too soon. All departing at the evening tide wishing that they could have such a reunion each year.
