1 FLOYD F. BIGAREL 1923 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A HARDWORKING UPSTATE NEW YORK FARMER WHO DETAILS THE POST WORLD WAR I RURAL LIFE OF A DAIRYMAN
HALIESBORO GOUVERNEUR ST LAWRENCE COUNTY NY 1923 Hard Cover Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is an interesting post World War I 1923 manuscript relic of rural living and commerce in upstate New York being the handwritten diary of farmer Floyd F. Bigarel of Gouverneur, New York, St. Lawrence County. Floyd does not identify himself in the book but ephemera contained all bear his name and he celebrates his birth as census records find that he was born March 20th 1890 [d. November 1971] thusly 33 years old at the writing and confirming ownership. Floyd does a good job detailing his life: he never fails to note the weather conditions, his jobs for the day, his personal entertainments, visits, personal appointments, to Church or to the Hailesboro Democrat League meetings etc., etc. Sometimes however he leaves a very enigmatic note: "Stayed home today for a wonder." Researchers and historians will be happy with the details of his economy and commerce as he specifies the price of daily purchases whether expenses to the farm or a 10 cent loaf of bread for himself. He also fully names his contacts and friends and notes passings and news: "Viola Hall Farmer died today of Tuberculosis aged 37". It appears to be a busy dairy farm but of course he does much more; harvesting ice, sells drinking water from well, washing heffers, cutting and hauling lumber, having a wolf tooth removed from two horses, using a milking machine for the first time and much, much more. This large 9 x 8 inch page a day book is full and overall VG.
