dc.description.abstractMSS. 274. 1848-1851. 0.04 cubic feet. The diary of James Knox (1786-1864), which begins in March 1848 and ends in February 1851, records the weather and the daily operations of his plantation in Pickens County, Alabama, including sowing, plowing, harvesting, and selling. He refers to several slaves by name, most often Patrick and Alvin. Knox's regular attendance at church and presbytery meetings is recorded in the diary, along with information about the pastors and their sermon texts. Ministers James Somerville, J. L. Kirkpatrick, Thomas Morrow, and A. P. Silliman are often mentioned. The diary also includes notes about social visits and family travels to Mississippi, Tuscaloosa, and elsewhere. Prior to its transcription in 2012, the diary was attributed to William M. Stone of Meridian, Mississippi and was known as the William M. Stone diary.
