Saturday, May 9th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work splitting rails to enclose the mill field. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] & Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] came up from Mother's in the buggy. I ground 33 bushels of corn. In the evening the little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp], children & I went down in the buggy to see Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] who is still quite sick. we remained all night. weather clear & pleasant.

*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. Mahala is also the mother of Margaret aka the little woman.
