In 1929, the Senff family gathered for Christmas at their farm on 6th Rd, in the southeast corner of German township. The ladies posed with their gifts, which included a coffee pot, and the men posed with their catch, a baker’s dozen rabbits.

Among the family present were Emma [Motz] Redman, her daughters Clara Senff and Della Anglemyer, and her son Oliver Redman; her husband Lewis had died in a car accident in 1920.

Clara’s daughters Ardella (Jensen), Edith (Amones), and Leora (Phillips) and her son Lewis Senff–named for his grandfather–were there as well. Her husband Ben Senff took the fellows hunting. They included Sylvester Anglemyer, Ardella’s beau Ray Jensen, Oliver Redman, and Ben’s young son Lewis. Lewis grew up to serve in WW2 and establish Senff Wood Products just west of Bremen.
