4 Handwritten Diarys,1909-1943 Shively Family
THIS IS NOT MY AUCTION..JUST SAW IT AND TRYING TO HELP GENEALOGY INTERESTED FAMILY GET IT BACK...HURRY ENDS MARCH 15TH
This set is comprised of four items, beginning with a Sunday school class
teacher's notebook. The class was "The Royal Gleaners", and this is a 7.5" x 9.5" leather covered spiral interior
bound from around 1943. Fourteen pages are heandwritten in pencil, and there's also lots of reciepts, Revival
notices, and other paper goods left inside. There's a bit of wear at the top and bottom of the spiral, but it remains
in good condition. A 4" x 6" farm accounts book from 1909 is here, too, and is an interesting glimpse into farm life
90 years ago. It's in great condition, and is from a farm at the Ohio/Indiana border. Included in this is a
handwritten account of Shively family history from 1859-1905. Another bank book from around 1910, which
contains all manner of scribblings and notes pertaining to church and farm is here, too, and a hardback diary from
the same place, a few years later (Martha Cripe, Mulberry, Indiana, 1940) is still in great shape. All entrys are
well done in fountain pen, and it runs from Jan 1 to March 20. A typical entry: "Wednesday, March 6, snowed a
little, blowed hard, took eggs to Marshalls, made a batch of soap, started a rug and cleaned out chicken house".
The binding and spine are quite tight, and the book does not feel as if it has ever been fully opened.
