A few weeks ago I found this diary at an estate sale. It's written in a 1922 fur dresser and dyer booklet, though the owner kept the diary in 1939. Her name was Martha Frances Crockett, and I can't seem to find any information on her other than a her gravestone in town.
From what I can read, she was a mother to a baby, and constantly unwell. There are some days pages are blank which could be days she couldn't leave bed. Other days she mentions being able to get up, and the rest of the time she's keeping up house and tending to farmwork. She seemed to be always making pies and jams, and I image her house was immaculate, she talks of bleaching the stove and painting the ceiling.
It looks like there are quite a few pages ripped out, how badly do you want to see those pages?!
