Schillers from Seaton
- Hello Pat.
Welcome to the group.
The picnic that you referred to is the annual Church of the Visitation picnic at Westphalia. It will be held this Sunday, Oct. 5 in downtown Westphalia. This picnic draws people from far and wide. The meals that they serve each year are terrific.
Do you have any knowledge of a Mr. Joe Schiller who used to live in Burlington, Texas (not far from Seaton). He sharpened saws and was a clock repairman. I had an uncle who was a carpenter and I remember taking hand saws to Mr. Schiller's house for him to sharpen them. I especially remember the sound of the ticking of the dozens of old mantle clocks that he had all around his house.
