Fryburg News—farmers of this vicinity have nearly all of their grain in their barns and the buzz of the thresher is heard in the distance.
The death of John Reineke, well-known Fryburg man, as brought to this county one of
its earliest pioneers in the person of Salvadore Vaubel, who left 55 years ago while the Civil War was still in progress and is now making
his first visit in 33 years. Mr. Vaubel, an uncle of attorney H.S. Vaubel of this city, and who was of the same relationship to Mr. Reineke, is a resident of Minneapolis, Minnesota. After removing from this county 55 years ago he went to Wisconsin and took up a land grant that was will to him by his brother. He is visiting with relatives in this city and Fryburg. It is a novel
experience for him to compare the rich, prosperous and well-populated Auglaize county of today with the small and struggling settlement
of 55 years ago. Mr. Vaubel is near 78 years old.
