Cynthia Melissa Fuller , March 1, 1850- March 20, 1923, dau. of William James Fuller and Cynthia M. Graves Fuller, Ridgebury, PA. Chattie later married a Mr. Brown. Julia was Chattie's little sister, and this was her first diary. Chattie's Diary is in dark italics, and Julia's, for the same day, is in the lighter colored text.

This diary is particularly poignant and emotional as it includes the death of Chattie's older married sister and the conflict with the brother-in-law over custody and care of the sister's young daughter. It gives us a look at the difficult episodes of life that are so often shielded away from us. It is my belief that history should be presented as it is and not sugar coated. In our generation we have to deal with many difficult issues, and it is important for us to understand that none of our problems are new or unique or in any way unusual. Our thanks to the submitter for allowing us to print this diary in its entirety. JAN. 1: Rose at four.
