I'm sorry, I'm a novice at computers. I sent you my grandmother's diary, or hope I did! (Alice Van de Mark Jackson). She was living in Wyalusing, PA at the time. It just kind of shows how women lived then. Granddad didn't have steady work and she took in boarders to help out.
Love your site. Love, Karen Jackson Hillis

Grammy had this poem in the back of her diary:
Woman was taken out of man,
Not out of his head to top him,
Not out of his feet to be trampled underfoot,
But out of his side to be equal to him,
Under his arm to be protected,
And near his heart to be loved.
