Picture of the Big Springs Band

Email me if you see this. I remember my Aunt Lillie talking about this band. It was from Big Springs in Logan County, Ohio. John Q. Brugler, the base drummer, was my great grand father. I remember my Mom and other relatives talking about VanBuskirks. Do you have any other photos?

This is awsome!!!

Hi Jerry

Why don't we just have a family reunion on here, huh? Hi Jerry, Hi Shannon!

This is so cool...I'll have to check this out more often. There seems to be a lot of our family logging on here and we ought to revive the Brugler Reunion. I know I may have met some but I don't remember very many and it would be good to all get together since all those cousins of our parents are all passing away.

Do you remember my Mom and Dad, Ralph and Jane Journell? We used to go out to your Dad's house in Big Springs and I remember the Artesian Well that you had in your yard. I remember going to your Grandfather's house, Uncle Bunny, and drinking milk fresh from the cow. I know we've met, but I'm not sure if you remember me since I was so little back then. I made a career of the Navy and at the last Brugler reunion I attended, your Dad was real proud of me and that meant a lot to me.

Brugler's in Logan County, Ohio

Do you have any other photos from that era? Are you relation and, if so, how would we be related? John Q's son, John L. Brugler, was/is my grandfather.

Bruglers in Logan County

Hi my name is Braden Brugler and I am the grandson of Ivon and Jean Brugler from zanesfield ohio and the son of Mark Brugler. I attend defiance college and recently met a distant cousin of mine S.G. Brugler. My Aunt lead me to this site and I thought it was pretty interesting. It would be pretty cool to know a little more about my family and where we came from.

Levi Brugler

Wow! That is soo cool! I've hear Aunt Lilly (Aunt Tommy) talk about, I believe, her Uncle Levi, and it is a shame that most of us don't know any of us exist. She was John Q's daughter. I've heard stories that the Brugler Reunion used to be HUGE, I mean back around 1900 or so, and when they quit it, I doubt 10 people would show up. Seeing these posts, I really wish there was a way we could all get together.

JP I believe if you search the site for Bruglers you should get a picture of one of the reunions back in the early 1900's.
