|There was a farm on Brookfield Rd. where they would walk to buy their
milk. For drinking water they used a spring behind Ken Gajewski's present
home. The meals were prepared in a large cast iron wood range in the kitchen
of the cottage. In a corner of the kitchen was a built-in ice box. There
were several places on the lake where people would cut ice in the winter
and preserve it in ice houses for the summer, thus providing the "cottagers"
In this group photo, Grandma Fearing (Lorraine Bernheim Fearing) is sitting
on the left in front. Her father is seated above her on the left.
Her mother is third from left and her brother, Daniel Purcel Bernheim,
is next. The others are relatives... one gentleman has only one leg,
having lost the other in the Civil War. Note the canary's cage hanging
from the porch rafter!
