I can confirm the story of the Hauer Pippin. Muriel Hauer told me the story several times, though I never heard the part about the Spreckles house.

Thomas Farms is just a quarter mile down the valley from the old Hauer place, where some very old Hauer trees used to grow. They were cross-grafted to form reinforced scaffold limbs, because they tend to rip out so easily.

For me the Hauer Pippin is the Thanksgiving apple, because there are still many crisp apples on the tree in late November.
