1 MARQUIS DE LAFAYETTE MOWRY 1905 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY AND JOURNAL OF PROMINENT RHODE ISLAND LAWYER
PROVIDENCE SMITHFIELD RHODE ISLAND RI 1905 Good 
On offer is a super relic of Rhode Island Americana being a manuscript diary handwritten by Marquis De Lafayette Mowry of the historical Rhode Island family by the same name. Dated 1905 Mowry provides a wealth of local commerce and genealogy of the Smithfield and Providence Rhode Island area as he has overfilled many days in this 3" x 6" x 1" thick "page-a-day" book with his small, precise scrawl that will detail for local collectors, historians and researchers well informed of the early 20th Century. Every day is filled in - the temperatures and weather is noted for each day of the year - he fills out his entire day's activities and who he saw with any legal notes. One of the pages copied notes the death of Arlon Mory on March 8, 1905 at 1:00 am and Arlon was born on February 23, 1833. While ownership is not precisely stated there are many notes and his signature is written many times in the back pages of this book after December 31st page. His signature is verified in a Genealogy History of the Mowry family found in the book entitled , "The Descendants of John Mowry of Rhode Island by William A. Mowry (Providence, RI: Preston & Rounds Co.,1909). Copy is kept at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Here is a random snippet: August 20th, 1905 "Very fair all day and warm all day. Thermometer 56 about 6 o'clock then 80 about 2 o'clock P.M. 70 after sunset. I remained at my home all night last night and slept in the parlor bedroom. Sarah and Winfred slept in the chamber over the parlor, Richard slept in the chamber over the kitchen. Edwin H. Mowry slept in the large back bedroom upstairs. Richard and Edwin H. and myself went up to the _____spring this morning and cleaned it. Returned to the house and I started about 10 o'clock and went up the road to Frank Mowry's. Heard his wife had gone to Greenville to see the ____, his wife's father told me and I went up to Fred Carpenters and talked with him under the ash tree. He said Wonton Harris went home yesterday from there to ____. He had been boarding there 3 weeks. I then went to ____Mowry's and talked with him and his folks……." BIO NOTES: Marquis D L Mowry was [b.
