75 Years Ago Today
June 9, 1939
This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.
Here is the daily entry for Wednesday, June 9:
Didn't get up very early. Pete up home putting on the cultivator & plowed Moylan 80 corn in pm. Jr. helped him. I went in town & ironed in pm & Jenny cut my hair. Car turned over by George's. Over after Pete. Home chored. Out with Pete in garden. He hoed 4 rows spuds. Bathed, shaved, went to bed.
This photo is the cultivator on the tractor. This may be from a year earlier, of course. She is not eight months pregnant, and only use the cultivator in June or so… But, this is Pete with the cultivator on the tractor… ;-) ...and this is certainly what they looked like, then... ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
