To day the boys are still busy plowing the lower field in order to plant corn. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] & children drove down to Mother's in the buggy. I went down with them horse back. we found Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] but little better. Frank Stewart came up home with me & remained for dinner. In the evening the little woman with Margaret Hall [his daughter?] came home from Mothers. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] ground 14½ bushels of corn. weather clear & cold, with a hard frost at night, which I think has about finished what was left from last night's frost. Thus I close my jottings of little events that occured around me for the month of March.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Sam is a 2nd great-grandpa and is Mahala's son. Mahala is also the mother of the little woman, and is also the step-mother of JMH (who is married to the little woman).
