JANUARY – MAY 1919

DIARY
KEPT BY BERTHA SCRIBNER OF ALEXANDER, MAINE

Loaned by Mildred Holst; this dairy was not published in the A-CHS Newsletter

[Bertha and Leon Scribner were both 24 and were married on July 30, 1916. Bertha lists her height as 5’3" and her weight as 126#. They were living with his parents Mort (54) and Lelia (47) Scribner on the Airline Road across from the road to Cooper. Mort’s brother Uncle Theod[ore], his wife Aunt Ina and their children Ivan, Merton, Guy and Ethel were frequent visitors. By this time a number of Alexander families had moved to Woodland so the men could work in the paper mill. When someone called, they visited! E. W. was Ernest Wilson. He had moved to Woodland, but his farm was just north of Mort’s, so E. W. was also a place. See 1918 diary for help identifying people]

[That is the last diary entry. However, more notes are found in the back pages of the day book, which was an advertising tool of Vermont School Seat Company, Rutland, Vermont. These lists tell a lot about where this family got their money, other than the fire wood and produce sold in Woodland and Calais and pay for freight hauled for Arthur Flood]
