To day Sam* Sharp & I went out fishing and caught a very nice mess. Roberta [Hall] & Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up to see the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] and the children. The boys drove up three cows with calves from Mothers [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts]. weather changeable, with occasional showers of rain. at night it rained very hard and turned pretty cold, so much so as to make a fire quite comfortable.
*This Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Sam's mother. She is also the mother-in-law as well as the step-mother of JMH.
