Thursday, January 29th, 1863

To day Sam* Sharp is still at work making the loom. The boys are still at work on the garden fence. I ground 12 bushels of corn. I also paid Mr. Renfro 39$ for the fodder & peas purchased from him some time since. I also purchased from Mr. Pennington six hogs for which I paid him 3$ per head to be allowed in our settlement. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & Toby left for home, she however returned in the evening. Nellie [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] and the Major [James Hall Sharp] doing well. weather clear & cool, with a frost at night.

*Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is Sam's mother, as well as the mother-in-law and step-mother of JMH.
