I am already fascinated by this guy. I wonder what he looked like, what his family looked like, etc. I wonder what we could find out about him with just a little research? I can't wait to hear more.
I know! Now I'm going to have to look on Ancestry.com!!!At the same estate sale that I purchased the diary I also purchased an antique quilt done in a crazy quilt design and a woman's dress from that era. I have no confirmation that these items belonged to F and Bess but in my mind I always imagine they do!
Please refresh my memory, what does R10 mean? I'm getting rather curious about his life too.
Kristin,I'm assuming that R means rest or retire as the time given is usually somewhere between 10-12. Of course I could be wrong about what the numbers actually mean but I'm thinking if he is recording the weather each day, the time would be a good guess.
Okay thank you for explaining that it makes sense.
