On offer is a family archive of five [5] early Ohio diaries. Research suggests that the authors are cousins. Dorothy Hartong, of Greentown, Ohio writes the earliest diaries of 1887 and 1890. The other three [3] are handwritten by Carrie Raber of Uniontown, Ohio. We believe Carrie, who is often mentioned in the early diaries is the younger cousin who eventually returns to Uniontown, Ohio. She makes mention of travels from Uniontown to Congress Lake etc. What is very unique to this archive is the contrast in personalities. Dorothy is a pious and devout Church going girl who writes of her chores and duties to both the home and Jesus. This is a fascinating look at the devotion of a young girl. Interspersed is a wealth of historical details of the area and genealogy of north-east Ohio. Carrie on the other hand is much the same in her devotion to house and home and though she mentions Sunday School the odd time mostly she mentions missing it for the least of reasons. The dates of Carrie's diaries are 1892, 1907 and 1913. This is a huge family and between the two girls many, many dozens if not hundreds of names of visitors, attendees at events, deaths, funerals etc. would keep a researcher busy for a goodly long time. Three books are leather, the others are cloth or paper. Overall VG.
