To day I am still in Crockett and cannot get away as my [mule] has not yet been found. Billy Stewart tried to get my money from the negro boy York which he had stolen and succeeded in getting 30$ in new issue. The balance he had disposed off. at the mill Hicks ground 41 bushels of corn. Mother [Mahala* Sharp Hall nee Roberts] got 13 lbs of cotton. Weather changeable & pleasant. Thus closes my notes for the month of March.
*This Mahala is a 3rd great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog. She is also the step-mother as well as the mother-in-law of JMH.
