I gave the Original Post Owner/ Diary holder the phone number for the living descendants I spoke with, and she messaged me back and said the lady I had spoken with ( and her son) sounded like she was about to cry because she was so happy! The lady I had spoken with on the phone, messaged me back after I sent her a pic of the post, and was shocked at how well kept the 151 year old diary was! she Said, "What a treasure!" She told me she wished her mother in law, who had passed away (a few years ago I found), could have seen it. Her mother in law was the granddaughter of the original diary owner. She is quoted as saying, "My mother in law was a wonderful woman. Strong and fierce mother. And the best friend any could have. I love and miss her very much. Thank you for the connections. And I just spoke with ... Thank you again." The original post owner will be mailing them out the diary...again, such a cool find, and so glad I was able to reunite this 151 year old diary with her great grandchildren and her great great grandchildren!
