FOOD & MEALS
Describes making ice cream from clean snow, milk, and sugar. Explains the process of butchering a hog, shooting it, scalding it, sticking it, and cutting it up. Never made blood sausage or head cheese - like the Germans, his father said -- who used every bit except the squeal.
FAMILY BACKGROUND
Relates that his parents came from the area of Lynchburg. Mother and her siblings all went to Fairview School. Locates residences near Wildwing Duck Club. Family story is that the Sarff ancestors came to the United States as English prisoners (from Germany), but is vague on that. Grandfather may have come from IN in a covered wagon. Lots of Sarffs in Dakotas. The Sarff picnic tried to invite Sarffs from other states, but it has dwindled.
