Sensational archive of handwritten diaries centered around the Brubaker family of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Twenty [20] books comprised of sixteen [16] handwritten diaries, three [3] small notebooks and one [1] published book with manuscript notes. The diaries are dated 1914, 1916, 1917, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1923, 1923, 1924, 1926, 1927 and 1927. On average the books are 80% full. There are four authors: J. Henry Brubaker has written 12 diaries and most certainly 2 of the 3 notebooks. His wife Anna has written one notebook in her maiden name [Groff] and daughters, Anna Ethel [3] and Susan Violet [1]. The Brubakers appear to have been prominent rural business people in the farm supply business. A huge family as evidenced by the copious genealogical notes for the Lancaster County area as the notebooks specifically and the diaries are a wealth of family names and the connections. Family names: Brubaker, Stauffer, Groff, Buckwalter, Lefever, Landis, Nissley, Shenk, Longnecker, Neff, Dendlinger, Mtzler, Hurst, Erb, Hostetter, Shreiner, Lunks, Griders, Linchburger, Charles +++ The authors were very kind to fully identify family and relationships. Weather, economy, births, deaths, marriages and other local events showing the homefront during and after the first World War years. Overall in very good condition though one diary has some spine damage from nibbling.
