Dorothy Jane Dill
Dotty's maternal grandfather whom she knew and loved left a diary of one line entries for the period from 1913 to 1918. It covers local (Brattleboro VT), national and world events, weather, and sports. Dotty prepared the diary and submitted copies to the New England Genealogical Society in Boston and to the Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro, VT. She also published it to the Internet and its available here.
She also received a diary from her aunt that was written by her great great grandfather that he wrote during his trip across America in 1889, only twenty years after the golden spike was driven completing the transcontinental railroad. He and his wife were part of a party of six that rode in the rail car The David Garrick through 21 states shunted from railroad to railroad but always living in the Garrick. A sister car, the Yellowstone accompianied theirs and there were 29 passengers total. You can read this fascinating trip across America here.

Jim has written the following three books:
Leonard Lock,ca. 1658-1711,
and Descendants. Published
in the spring of 1998, 412 pages, hardback, has 42
figures (maps, documents and photos). The report
follows the descendants of the titled Leonard Lock from
the Levels of Somerset County, England, to the waters of
Perkiomen Creek in Old Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania,
to the banks of the Northwest Branch of the Cape Fear
River in North Carolina and on to waters and wilds of
unsettled areas throughout the Southeastern United States
of America. An appendix was added to present
ancient history information on this family, found in a
number of published sources in England.
Kirkland Family Roots.
Published in the summer of 2002, 497 pages, softback
with a hard vinyl cover and the lay-flat feature.
The report is a study of all Kirkland males from Richard
Kirkland, who died in Fairfax County Virginia in 1743,
through his great grandsons. This equates to four
generations. The focus then shifts to his
descendants who were among the early settlers of Henry
County, Alabama. The males and females of all lines
of this family were then followed for four more
generations. This, in general, identifies the
generation that followed the Civil War and their
lineage to the original Richard Kirkland.
Pate Pioneers on The Pee Dee
River. This was a series of
typescript Narratives on various lines of the Pate Family
that made their home in the Pee Dee River area of North
and South Carolina in the pre-Revolutionary War era.
