    Introduction by Don Hansen.
    LaMira (Baldwin) Williams wrote these diaries. She lived on an east - west road that is just to the west of Bear Creek, Wisconsin. There is also a north - south road that intersects the east - west road between Bear Creek and LaMira's home. The intersection is known as Bear Creek Corners. LaMira lives with her husband Lucien Barber Williams, her son Harry Baldwin Williams, her nephew Lewis Warren Baldwin, and her mother-in-law Elizabeth (Barber) Williams Phillips. Elizabeth's first husband, Dr. David Williams and she were the parents of Lucien Williams. Dr. David Williams died when Lucien was a young child. Her second husband was Liscom Phillips. He died before the time of these diaries. He was probably related to the various Phillips families that are in the diaries. He may have been the father of some of them.
    When LaMira wrote entries for 1875 she wrote them in the top portion of the space provided, not taking much space for the entry. That left about half of the space unused. After the year was over and 1876 started, LaMira used the remaining space for each day. In each space she wrote the date at the left so that the current day corresponded with the same day for 1875. For example she entered "13" about halfway down the space for Sunday, February 14, 1875 to enter information for Sunday, February 13, 1876. She wrote the information after the number entered for the day in
    1876. LaMira wrote her diary for January 1877 through October 21, 1877 in the "MEMORANDA" section at the back of the diary. She also wrote a table of wages paid for two girls that helped at the home. LaMira also wrote her diary for 1878 in an unused portion of Harry Baldwin Williams' diary from 1878. That information is included in this document.
    Most records spell LaMira's name as "Lamira" including the Ashfield birth and marriage records and the 1880 Census. She wrote "LaMira" in her diaries. According to Williams' family members, she pronounced the "i" in LaMira as a long "i."
    The information was transcribed by reading the entries in the diary and hand writing them onto paper. Since the writing was so light and the paper had aged, it was hard to read the text and her handwriting. Some words could not be read and some were difficult to interpret the spelling because the letters were hard to determine. For instance a surname appeared to be "Hanse", but LaMira wrote her "o" so it looked like an "a." Also her "n" sometimes appeared as a "u" So the name is probably "House" instead of "Hanse." "House" is listed in American Surnames book by Elsdon C. Smith but "Hanse" is not. Harry Williams in his diaries written about the same time says "Mr. House," not "Mr. Hanse" so I'll use "House" in these writings. The 1880 Census uses "House" for the Julius & Mary House family living in Clintonville.
    LaMira refers to her brother Jonathan Baldwin as Johnie and as Johnnie. The latter has been used in this transcription since that is the acceptable spelling. She also talks about Eph or Ephraim who is her brother Ephraim Baldwin. Ephraim has a son also named Jonathan that she also refers to as Johnie and as Johnnie. Usually she is referring to her brother. Her brother Ephraim visits in 1877 with his family. Then Johnnie refers to her nephew. Her brother is Jonathan Baldwin who married Julia Hyde. Their daughter is Myra Baldwin.
    LaMira's brother Eden Augustine Baldwin had several wives. He had a daughter Lillian Emma Baldwin from his wife Emma (Safford) Baldwin. LaMira corresponds with Emma in this diary. She most likely is corresponding with Eden's wife Emma (b. 28 Aug 1835) rather than her niece Lillian Emma (b. 3 Dec 1868). On August 28, 1877 LaMira states it is Emma's birthday. Emma (Safford) Baldwin's birthday is August 28, 1835. Emma is the mother.
    Lewis Baldwin lives with Lucien and LaMira Williams. He and his twin brother Lucien Baldwin were born May 15, 1867. Their father was Eden Augustine Baldwin and Esther (Warren) Baldwin. Esther died May 31, 1867; two weeks after the twins were born. Eden Augustine Baldwin then married Emma Safford. Emma became pregnant shortly after they were married. Unfortunately, Eden Augustine Baldwin died before the baby was born. He died May 1, 1868. The baby, Lillian Emma Baldwin was born on December 3, 1868. Lewis Baldwin was sent to live with his Aunt LaMira. Lucien Baldwin was sent to live with Alburtus L. Bruce and his wife Elizabeth B. Bruce in Pomfret, Windham, Connecticut. Emma Baldwin and her daughter Lillian Emma Baldwin moved to Scotland, Windham, Connecticut to live with here father, Soth S. Safford. Soth is also widowed. The location of Emma Baldwin, Lillian Emma Baldwin and Lucien Baldwin was found by searching the 1880 US Census Index. Emma and Lillian were found using Lillian's birth date (within 2 years). She was living with Soth S. Safford. Searching for him as the Head of Household listed him with Emma and Lillian Emma. Similarly, the index was searched using the name Lucien Baldwin and his birth date (within 2 years). Only three were found in the United States. Only one of the three was born in Massachusetts. The head of household was Alburtus L. Bruce. Searching using the name as head of household yielded Alburtus L. Bruce, his wife, his father, and Lucien Baldwin (born in 1867 in MA).
    Harry writes to his cousin Myra. One Myra is Ephraim Baldwin's daughter. Myra visits with Ephraim's family in 1877. She was 2 years old in 1877. Another Myra is the daughter of LaMira's brother, Jonathan Baldwin. This Myra's mother is Julia (Hyde) Baldwin, wife of Jonathan Baldwin. Myra was 20 years old in 1877. Harry was 19 years old in 1877.
    LaMira refers to Uncle L. Church. He is Leonard Church, husband of Jane Barber who is the sister of Lucien Williams' mother Elizabeth (Barber) Williams. She refers to Aunt Caroline. She is Caroline (Hayward) Barber, the wife of William Henry Barber. William is the brother of Elizabeth (Barber) Williams and the uncle of Lucien Williams.
    Embarrass is a town and a river in Wisconsin. In the diaries, LaMira says, "went over to the Embarrass" so she probably means the river.
    C.W.P. and C.W. Packard are used in the diary. The full name is Chester W. Packard.
    Mother, when used by LaMira in this diary, refers to Lucien's mother, Elizabeth (Barber) Williams. Lucien's father died when he was a baby. Elizabeth married Liscum Phillips, brother of Roxy Jane Phillips. LaMira Goodwin Baldwin's mother is Roxy Jane Phillips. Martin and Philena in this diary are Uncle Martin and Aunt Philena in Laura Belle (Wolcott) "Williams' Diary". Also, Nathan and Lydia in this diary are Uncle Nathan and Aunt Lydia in Laura's diary. Martin is Martin Phillips and Nathan is Nathan Phillips. They appear to be related to Harry, but they are probably cousins, not uncles. They could be uncles if Elizabeth and Liscum Phillips had children and Martin and Nathan were their sons. However there is no indication in this diary that this is the case. Checking dates of birth, Martin and Nathan are too old to be children of Elizabeth & Liscum Philips because they were born before Elizabeth & Liscum married.
    Breakfast is the morning meal, dinner is the noon meal and supper is the evening meal. "Called" means "visited." They did not have telephones in Bear Creek in 1875.
    There are a number of references to E. C. D. in this document. On December 10, 1878, Emery ordered butter from Lucien Williams. On December 14, 1878 they were getting butter ready for shipment to E. C. D. Therefore, E. C. D. is Emery. Emery C. Davis lived in Northampton, Massachusetts. Emery sent information about a bank robbery in Northampton received on February 1, 1876. LaMira used "Emery" and "Emory" in her diary. "Emery" appears to be the preferred spelling and is also listed that way in the 1880 Census.
    LaMira talks about Lucy and Minnie many times in her diaries. I felt that Lucy and Minnie are probably both Phillips. Lucy married a Mr. Norman on July 28, 1877. Searching for a Mr. Norman in the 1880 Census did not locate him and Lucy. Searching for Lucy Norman indicated she and her daughter were living with Lydia and Nathan Phillips. Evidently Mr. Norman died or left. This indicates that Lucy is Lydia's daughter. Minnie married Mr. Ransom Cook in March of 1879. She was living with R. G. Cook in Clintonville, Wisconsin according to the 1880 Census. She has a daughter Ethelyn Cook that was 4 months old at the time of the Census. Searching through the diaries in this document shows that Minnie is usually associated with Lydia, Lucy, Ralph and Nathan when she does things. She is probably also Lydia's daughter. She is two years older than Lucy is. Her parents are listed as being born in Massachusetts in the 1880 Census. If that is correct, she could be either the daughter of Philena Phillips or Lydia Phillips. She is seldom mentioned with Philena Phillips and often with Lydia, so Lydia is my choice. This can probably be confirmed using the 1870 census. Lydia, a widow, was married to Nathan's brother.
    LaMira also talks about Kate P_ a number of times. She is probably Martin Phillips' daughter because she is associated with him several times and she was married on November 25, 1875 at Martin Phillips' home. However, the name of her husband is not given. One place talks about Kate and Fred Ranke with several other people before she was married, but does not say if they are going together. A search for Fred Ranke in the 1880 US Census does not find him. Also, could not find a Kate or Catherine Ranke, Rank or similar name in the US that matched. A search for Kate or Catherine with no last list yields an extremely long list. I will list her has Kate (Phillips) but the 1870 Census should be checked to verify the information.
