[Typed by sister Aneta, electronically retyped by grandson Robert J. Neff, rob@neff.net, http://www.neff.family.name/ in December 2006 with no edits other than this paragraph, and removal of hyphens for word breaks as line ends and page breaks are slightly different. Note that these families spoke German, and since these stories were written down in English, several names have probably been anglicized (John for Johann or Johannes). Note also the end of the second paragraph of the Recollections, where the name Caroline is misspelled. As a side note, the town of Temvik was named for the Temple (Tempel) brothers (Susanna's great-uncles?) and Ed Larvik, early settlers.]
