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.
