Breiner or Briner

My Maurer (Mowrer) line intermarried a lot with the Breiner or Briners in Wayne Co. Ohio in the early 1800s, maybe 1820s to 1850s or so. I suspect my Maurers/Mowrers may have lived on Breiner/Briner land in the western part of Wayne Twp., Wayne Co., near the Chester Twp. line, and this Breiner land belonged to a Frederick Briner, if I recall correctly (from 1826 or so to 1830s or so). Two or three of my Christian Maurer/Mowrer's children married Breiners.
From about 1902 to roughly 1916 the Mowrers and Breiners or Briners of Wayne Co. held joint family reunions, or should I say they did until 1908 or 1909 or so, when the Breiners withdrew from the reunions. I would love to correspond with Breiner descendants and find out genealogical information, and why the Breiners withdrew from the reunions...were the Mowrers hogging the black raspberry pie? (attempted humor).
