1 B.H. PEABODY 1866 - 1867 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY/JOURNAL/NOTEBOOK OF A SUCCESSFUL KINSMAN OHIO BUSINESSMAN
KINSMAN OHIO OH TRUMBULL COUNTY 1866 Good Manuscript 
On offer is the handwritten manuscript diary and journal of B. H. Peabody of Kinsman Ohio. Mr. Peabody is a farmer and entrepreneur who, in this ledger style book, records his daily business dealings, visits, local events and the economics of the day. Beginning January 1st of 1866 he continues over 93 numbered pages until November 8th, 1867. There is a break between November 1st and December 31st 1866. A very, very hard working and obviously successful businessman, Mr. Peabody is also very pious, as is evidenced in his comments of the day - at one point he mentions preaching the funeral service for a particular woman. He is also a very dedicated diarist always providing full names of his contacts and clients. The inside back cover has a chart which appears to be a planting breakdown of varieties if apples. There are also nmany references to the local cheese market. Local historians and genealogists will find a wealth of information in this book which is quite legible but requires a glass in places as the period ink is on the lighter side. 7 1/4 x 11 3/4 inches, the front cover has a split where the cover meets the spine. Two strings in the center of the book hold the cover to the spine. Back cover is good. Pages are also good. The edges of the covers are worn. Overall G.
