1 Mrs. B. Floyd Paige 1907 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A DUTIFUL YOUNG HOMEMAKER AND WIFE
Glen Castle New York NY 1907 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is an interesting diary of the young Mrs. Floyd Paige [nee Tyrell]. Research suggests that they are new to marriage - Mrs. Paige notes that Floyd kills a chicken for dinner which she cooks and remarks with pride that this was only the third chicken she had ever dressed. A later notation marks there first anniversary. It also appears that this woman is surrounded by Floyd's family and she dutifully notes names throughout. Her Mother and brother Claude live not too faraway but mostly in touch with the telephone. Mrs Paige does a very good job relating succinctly her and her husband's days, their visits, births, deaths and all those who enter their circle of life. She also relates work, social activities and milestones. Here are snippets: "January 11th - a year ago today we went to keeping house" "Aunt Edna is 22 yrs old January 4th" "Joe the horse was sick" "February 14th, Sport birthday one year old today" "February 16th Frank Ross married." "February 17th Pa is 54 years old today." "March 1st, a mad dog scare" "swept the tenant house" "Hattie Palmer and Fayette Smith came here to be married. Father Paige married them, Edna and I witnessed." "Witneys Point Fair" Binghamton Fair". Names mentioned include: Mary Windfield, Florence Dowd, Edward Browning, Charlie Everetts, Mr. Howard, Inez Johnson, The Happy Club, Mr and Mrs Milo Lee, Charles A. Palmer, Ward Oliver, Earle and Lily Ketchum, Grandpa Lee, Mr. MacDonald, Mr. and Mrs Ousterhout, Burt Bishop. A more than casual reading will provide a wealth of genealogical information. Overall VG.
