 Little Home Histories, Part 72 -- Eli Stanton Family Anecdotes.

by Holloway, Helen Hall.

See previous entry: Little Home Histories, Part 71 -- Eli Stanton's Sorghum Mill.

Many were the happy memories in the Eli Stanton home where for twelve years the three families represented, worked, and played in closest harmony.

My mother Sarah Stanton Hall recalls "going fishing" with her sister Mary E. Fawsett (Aunt Marie) down at the creek. They strained the water through their wide dress skirts and in this way caught the fish.

Hunting the sweet apples and then hiding them for future use was quite a game. Hunting to find another's hidden store was part of the fun.

One time they tapped some trees hoping to get Maple sap to boil down for a delicious treat and found they had tapped some Beech trees, too.
