Thank You

Thank you to all the many readers who read through these diary entries one day at a time through the past nearly three years.

As you've surmised, I do not have any more of Grandma's diaries beyond 1927. My aunt has made some attempts to find out if any remaining diaries are buried in boxes somewhere amongst far-flung relatives, but has come up with nothing.

In the next few days, I'll post some additional information on Grandma, Gilbert, Dale, Dick, Albert, Ned, and Marjorie, along with my mom, Eleanor, born in 1929.

If you have any specific questions, please leave me a comment.

A very special thank you to Annie in Austin, who did many kind, random acts of geneaology, sending me emails with additional information on some of the distant relatives and grandma's neighbors.

New Years Day. Zero. Too cold to go to Sunday school. Papa didn’t come out as he was nursing frozen pipes
