Thursday, April 16th, 1863


To day the boys are at work completing the fence around the lower field. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] went down to Mothers [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] & back. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] returned from his cow hunt but without any success. I ground 5½ bushels of corn and then worked in the little field around the house replanting corn. weather clear and warm.


*This Nellie and Sam are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Sam's mother.
