To day the boys finished planting corn in the lower field. I ground 15 bushels of corn. Sam* Sharp arrived home on a furlough from the army. He is a member of Capt. Nunn's Company of Cavalry. Weather cloudy & warm.
*This Sam aka Samuel Houston Sharp is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. The few mentions in this journal of his military experience are the ONLY record we have found of his confederate service.
