 Memorabilia of the Tri-Counties

Thirteen year old Mildred MUDGE (1895-1925) attended the Mansfield Fair on 24 SEP 1908. Being an incorrigible list keeper, a trait she passed on the her only grandchild, she listed the attendees. The list concentrates on the residents of Sullivan Township whom she knew.

Joyce's Search Tip - December 2010
Do You Know that you can search just the 355 pages of our
Diaries and Letters
on this site  by using the Diaries button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? But diaries and letters are wonderful sources to understand the culture of time and place. Read them and enjoy them slowly.
I kept the list with the arrangement and spacing of her original list. Her handwriting is impeccable, a trait she did not pass on to my father or me. Keeping with the tradtion of the time, the female and male listings are kept separately. Where she has used a married name and I know the person's real name off the top of my head, I have included it in parentheses.
