Williston Historical Society Presentation
The Williston Diaries
Local historian and author Richard Allen will present a slide show on Saturday, May 10, at 11:00 a.m. in the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library, entitled “The Williston Diaries.” The presentation takes a look at some aspects of 19th century Williston history based on the diaries of two women: Adelaide Isham Crossman and Ellen Metcalf.
The 1863 and 1864 diaries, and letters from her husband Ferdinand, give a fascinating picture of the concerns of Adelaide Isham Crossman as she dealt with challenges during the Civil War. She kept busy with raising two children, overseeing the farm, and making drawers for soldiers.
