Margaret’s Diary, A Pennsylvania Farmwife’s Journal, 1904–1919, 2nd
edited by Alden and Sam Jackson and Bernadine Lennon. 2011. The
diary of Margaret Gilpin Hazelton details daily life in rural Wayne
and Pike Counties between 1904 and 1919. It gives us a rare glimpse
into the beginning of a time of great change in America as seen
through the eyes of a rural farm wife. Margaret introduces us to her
immediate family: husband Fletcher and daughter Kathleen, and to
“Mama”, sisters, brothers, in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins,
neighbors and friends most of whom lived within a 5-mile radius of
her home. An entry for April 25, 1908, states: “cloudy & warm.
(Fletcher) plowing corn ground. I have been living over the old
scenes, dreaming the old dreams. it beats all how they will stand
the test of so many years. I would like to choose one hour from out
the years to live over again. some one may see this but they will
not be any wiser for it.” We are now able to see through her eyes
and discover how she and her family met the challenges of her day.
