To day the boys are at work on the stables. Sam* [Samuel Houston Sharp] left Crockett in route for Marshall. I ground 15 bushels of corn. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] planted some English peas in the garden. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] came up and remained all night with Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire], who is recovering slowly from her late confinement. Weather clear and warm for the season. in fact a perfect spring day.
*This Sam and Nellie are 2nd great-grandparents to the Keeper of this family history blog. Margaret is Sam's sister (and wife as well as step-sister to JMH). Mahala is Sam and Margaret's mother.
