To day the boys are at work on the public road leading from the Mill to Crockett. Sam* Sharp rode my horse Rob to Crockett & back in order to sell some cotton but failed to do so. Hicks ground 12 bushels of wheat. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Sharp] rode down to Mothers [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] and Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] came home with her. Weather cloudy & cold with misting rain.
*This Sam Sharp is a 2nd great-grandpa to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is his mother.
