Note: Lura Anderson Ward, my grandmother, told me in Sept 1970 that most of the entries are in the handwriting of Andrew Jacob Mosteller*, her uncle. She was surpised to see at that time that her sister, Phenie, who died an infant, was not included. Lizzie Mosteller Anderson was Lura’s mother. Phenie’s dates were: Oct 22, 1888—Aug 10 1889.
