1 MARJORIE GOSS 1913 + 1914-1916 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY BY A YOUNG OHIO SCHOOL GIRL REPORTING SMALLPOX, KILLER WIND STORMS AND PLAYING FARMER AND BEING CHOSEN AS 'WIFE'
MARIETTA OHIO OH 1913 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer are two [2] handwritten manuscript personal diaries of Marjorie Goss, an approximately 10 year old school girl who lived in Marietta, Ohio, representing the years 1913 in one book and 1914-1916 in a second book. She attended Marion Grade School. Her very legible cursive writings detail her daily life with a great deal of local history and genealogy. She reports smallpox in her class and a doctor providing 'vaxinations' but Marjorie couldn't as she 'has bad blood'; wind storms killing 100s of people; preparations for an expected flood and the damages done by the flood; going to Liman Howe's moving pictures; playing farmer and Carlos choosing her for wife; the sad lingering illness of Aunt Allie; going to the Hippodrome in Columbus; celebrating Marietta Day and much, much more. Marjorie Goss was the daughter of Alice W. [nee Farquhar] and Joe Goss, who used to live in Zanesville but ended up in Marietta, East Cleveland, and eventually Mount Gilead. This is a lovely, charming and informative look at pre-World War I piece of Americana and all the more being from this bright young girl. General signs of ageing but overall G+.
