Cast of Characters

The family consisted of Emma and Frank, and their children. From oldest to youngest: Prescott, Mattie, Emma, Henry, Susan, Ruby, George, Florence and Edward. The last four were not yet born when the journal starts. In addition, Frank’s mother, Susan, and stepfather Prescott Williams lived with them (referred to as Grandma/Mother W./Mother and Grandpa in the journal.)

Emma’s parents lived nearby and were usually referred to as Mother and Father. Emma’s living siblings were Florence, Edward and Arthur. Arthur was quite a bit younger than Emma – only 11 when the journal started.

A number of people mentioned in the journal are relatives of some stripe. This Tilton genealogy helps place some of them: http://www.tilton.org/gp8236.htm
