4 Handwritten Diarys,1909-1943 Shively Family Item #567864313 THIS IS NOT MY AUCTION..JUST SAW IT AND TRYING TO HELP GENEALOGY INTERESTED FAMILY GET IT BACK...HURRYENDS MARCH 15TH This set is comprised of four items, beginning with a Sunday school class teacher's notebook. The class was "The Royal Gleaners", and this is a 7.5" x 9.5" leather covered spiral interior bound from around 1943. Fourteen pages are heandwritten in pencil, and there's also lots of reciepts, Revival notices, and other paper goods left inside. There's a bit of wear at the top and bottom of the spiral, but it remains in good condition. A 4" x 6" farm accounts book from 1909 is here, too, and is an interesting glimpse into farm life 90 years ago. It's in great condition, and is from a farm at the Ohio/Indiana border. Included in this is a handwritten account of Shively family history from 1859-1905. Another bank book from around 1910, which contains all manner of scribblings and notes pertaining to church and farm is here, too, and a hardback diary from the same place, a few years later (Martha Cripe, Mulberry, Indiana, 1940) is still in great shape. All entrys are well done in fountain pen, and it runs from Jan 1 to March 20. A typical entry: "Wednesday, March 6, snowed a little, blowed hard, took eggs to Marshalls, made a batch of soap, started a rug and cleaned out chicken house". The binding and spine are quite tight, and the book does not feel as if it has ever been fully opened.
