1815 Directory of Virginia Landowners Frederick County

In 1782 the General Assembly of Virginia enacted new tax laws which created within each county an enumeration of land and certain personal property. These early land tax laws required a tax commissioner in each district of a county to record a list of the names of persons owning land or town lots, the quantity of land owned and its value, and the amount of tax owed. This is in alphabetical order so makes it great to look up your relative. $12.00 including postage.

Diary of Lawrence Litchfield No.6

May 24, 1906.  This is diary #t for Lawrence.  What a dedicated guy to have written so many diaries!

"May 25, Thursday.  Today Pap and Mam washed, I went to school also, Elsie and the boys also went to school walked both ways on account of Daisy our mare having a fine young colt; come last night.  Pap and I had a two or three mile hunt for the cows and then did not them we just got hoe at half past nine. Pap got home 15 minutes sooner than I did.  I went north pap, west. Mr. Bristol started to plant corn on our place today.  The weather was quite cool all day and cloudy too.  It sprinkled a little, not much.  61 above during the day.  50 above at night."

This young man writes a wonderful diary.  He tells about fixing up the shed which they move into and how they have to raise it up and put stone around it.  The stone comes from the pumphouse.  They seem to have a large amount of land.  This young man works a lot and seems to enjoy himself....no complaining.  Nice guy!

Diary belonging to M. Bertha Brower perhaps daughter of Dr. Charles Brower

1919 diary of M. Bertha Brower, Silver City, Pa.  I believe Miss Brower is away at school.  Writes about getting a letterfrom home.

Thursday January 16, 1919 " Weather fine.  No Eng today.  We had Missionary Study.  Betty got a box of eats today.  Certainly fine.  Went to gym.  Played volley ball.  Had my 2nd inoculation to-night.  Had current events in History 36 states have ratified Prohition Amendment therefore a dry nation assured in Jan. 1920"

I just love this diary, it takes me a long time to enter it for sale because I begin reading and get caught up with what kind of person wrote this history.

This diary is in very good condition.  A found treasure for the Brower family!
