On offer is the handwritten manuscript diary of Nettie Taffner, her husband George and their children Pearl [14], Robbie and Eva and her folks [Pa is 50]. In some ways a simple retelling of Nettie's day to day routine but much more than that Nettie provides a wealth of genealogical information and local history of her North Manlius, New York [very near Syracuse] detailing births, deaths, marriages, illnesses, caregivers and much, much more. Dozens and dozens of friends, events and contacts including: Charlie Noth killed by the cars at Bolivar, Ed Kent, Anna O'Brien, Luther Brown's Baptist social, Jake Snyder, Hobart Case and his magic lantern, Ed Costello, Mandu Lade, Mrs Alvord, Mrs. Krafft, Mr. Hubbs, Julia Sanborn, Fremont School, Will Nota, Chancey Button, Dr. Curtis. Nettie also mentions places including: Cicero, Hartsville, Kirkville, Sylvan Beach, Hartville, Green Lake +++. Of particular interest and very unique is the mention of so many 'ethnic' and 'exotic' names. It appears North Manlius was an inviting haven for a number of different socio-ethnic groups. Overall the diary is VG.
