When Emil Ebert immigrated to Rock Creek Valley in the recently-opened Kansas territory in 1854, little did he know that the descendants of his son Charles would return in 2014 to celebrate 160 years of family heritage.

On this past 4th of July weekend representatives from Charles and Anna Ebert's children; Ann, Aloysius, Charles, Benedict, Yvo and Kenneth returned to where it all started.

The two-day celebration was launched on Friday, July 4th as fourth, fifth and sixth generations of Emil

Ebert's family gathered to ride on the family float in the 143rd Wamego 4th of July parade.

After the parade, Jim and Donald Ebert hosted a barbeque at REED Co. The Wamego fireworks display climaxed the evening's activities.

The family fun continued on Saturday at St. Joseph's Parish Hall at Flush as more than 150 Ebert descendants gathered again to meet and greet their kin.

The next reunion is planned for July 3-4, 2016.
