Scope and content

This book belonged to Sanford Watts Haskill, son of Josiah, grandson of Nathaniel and records financial numbers along the top and right side columns. The body of the page is a journal /record of the day to day happenings on the farm and describes the weather for each day, with date listed in the left hand columns. - this journal/ledger consists of 565 pages. A loose page, with three columns, (2 for "Deaths" and one coulmn for "Marriages") is inserted at the beginning of the book and lists the names of people who have died or been married with a page number beside. Turning to the page gives you the date of death or marriage indicated by a notation. As the page is badly worn on the right side the Marriage page numbers are missing. On the reverse side the page numbers are clear, although the names are difficult to read.

Nathaniel Haskill and his wife Abigail (Sawyer) with 7 children made their way to Smith's Creek from Massachusetts about 1795. They were part of the 187 settlers brought in by Elias Smith, J. Walton and A. Walton. - T
