Bier Family

Descendants of Edna Elizabeth Chapline and James Landon Bier will hold a family reunion at the Wagon Shed shelter in Oglebay Park on Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m.

About 50 family members are expected to attend. They will be celebrating the 100th wedding anniversary of Bier and Chapline, who were united in marriage at Wesley Methodist Church, Wheeling, on July 28, 1919.

The Biers had nine children and 34 grandchildren. Two children of the original nine, Alice B. Bruhn and Mary B. Jones, are still living and are expected to attend the reunion. The cousins will share the usual picnic food plus a wedding cake.

The last full reunion was 10 years ago. Now more cousins from another branch of the family want to join in the gathering. This family welcomes any Chapline looking to research their ancestry.
