GG Grandpa Fash worked for the railroad building the Lake Erie Railroad when he was young and unmarried. GGG Grandma Schafer cooked for all the men who worked on the railroad. She also took in boarders one of whom was my GG Grandpa Fash. This is how he and Anna Schafer met, fell in love and got married. Later Grandpa Fash had a small horse stable. My mom said she used to ride the horses there. Grandma Elizabeth Fash Ingersoll told me she used to work outdoors helping papa around the farm. She milked the cows and such while aunt Laura liked being indoors and helped mama cook breakfast and do other chores around the house.

Papa's Cabin

This log cabin was built by Aunt Laura, Uncle Harry and Grandpa Fash. Grandpa Fash lived in it after he retired. He lived there by choice not that he didn’t have the means to do otherwise. He wanted to live a simple life on the land owned by his father, and his father before him. My family were people of means but never acted like it. The land had been owned by our family for 125 years. The lock on the cabin was a reproduction, built from memory of one Grandpa Fash saw of a lock made by Abraham Lincoln in New Salem.
