To day the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] and Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] went off in hunt of black berries, and returned with but few. Nothing in the way of business. My mules got out of the stable and run off for the up country. The boys are still at work on the fence. weather changeable & cool. thus closes the jottings for April.
This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog.
