The Buzzard Saga

The following are stories about a family Aunt Katy knew at the turn of the last century. Ox Buzzard (pronounced Buh-ZARD) was a larger-than-life figure who raised children, horses and sheep on a farm he wrested from the wilderness that was Upstate New York at the time.

Like many of Aunt Katy's characters, Ox might never have actually existed, but he represents a breed of men who made this country thrive and grow. Please enjoy this look back into a "time that was", at least in Aunt Katy's memory.
