Gruber Bridge
Posted January 21, 2019, by Helen Johnson (ronhelen25 [at] gmail [dot] com)

My great grandfather egnthuis aka Natsy, donated the land on snipe hollow Rd to make a short cut from Elizabeth Illinois to Scalesmound Illinois blacktop! The home that he built is located by a long driveway near the bridge! While he was building the home in 1921, he lived in the log house on the right opposite side of the bridge. All of Natsy and Mary Grubers grandchildren were born in the home nearest the Gruber bridge!! Their daughter Anne Gruber- Holland and Herman Hollands children were born in the home starting with Francis Aug 1922.
