ANNALS of KNOX COUNTY

Under section History of Rio Township by Heber Gillis
In 1835, Michael Bruner drove a pair of oxen from Breckenridge Co, KY,
to Rio, bringing his wife and young family. Later Mrs. Bruner died. In
1839 he drove a pair of oxen to the same place in KY and brought a
second wife, his father Adam Bruner, and his Uncle Peter Bruner, with
him to Rio. Both the elder Bruners had spent long years preaching the
gospel. They with their two brothers had served in the Revolutionary War
and all four were later buried in a cemetery on the Bruner farm. Knox
county now owns this site and has erected a monument to their memory.
The Bruner farm in 1850 had a licensed tavern upon it and possessed
unusual buildings for that day. It was on the trail from Peoria to Rock
Island and during the Civil War, fruit from its fine orchard sold for
$50 per tree on the stem.
