To day I am engaged in writing up this note book. Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] & little Major [James Hall Sharp] with James Roberts came up and spent the day. Nellie remained & Roberts returned to Mother's [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts]. Weather variable and pleasant.
*This Nellie is a 2nd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma, and is Nellie's mother-in-law, as well as the step-mother and the mother-in-law of JMH.
