On offer is the daily diary of Mary Ann Wells Calhoun of Greenville, New York in Greene County. Mary Ann makes personal notes and business notations as she seems to run a farm that includes a boarding house and noted the guests and their movements and the number of individuals that ate meals or came to tea etc. Mary Ann, likely a widow as she never mentions a husband and frequently gets rides from others on the way to Church or town, is also a keen observer of events around her and mentions all local events and passings. Here are some snippets: "Attended the funeral of Jane Miller a collered woman 99 years old." "Dear Sister Robbins died very suddenly this morning about six oclock. I was alone in the house with her. Philo Conkling and Doct came over. Philo stayed. Mary Talmadge here." "Funeral today at the house. She looked very natural." "Heard today of the death of my dear brother Lynde Wells. 90 years old." "Mr. P. Stevens store was entered last night by burglars. $500 was taken." Besides faithfully recording the local events she notes the weather and cost of items and labor. Local historians and collectors will find a wealth of information. G+.
