Today is Uncle Adam’s birthday.  He is going to be 81 years old.  It is raining again a little this morning.  Rosalia went out to Uncle Fred’s this morning and brought Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary along back with her.  They were here for dinner & two lunches.  Henry & family were all here too for dinner and two lunches.  Papa, Uncle Fred, Henry, dug up the sewer this morning.  It was blocked up but it didn’t come through yet, so they will have to work another day if they didn’t get finished today.  Mr. Hill was over a little while.  Rosalia took 4 doz. eggs to the store & got .19¢ a dozen.

Mr. George Heyl got killed this afternoon.  The way we heard Mr. George Heyl had been to the stockyards and when he was coming home he got killed between Smithton and Hecker in that creek bottom by Grohman’s.  He ran out of gas and went to the neighbor’s house to get some, when coming back a machine struck him and killed him.  There is so many tales out, that you don’t know which was the right.  Henry Gambach found him laying on the road when he came back from St. Louis.


Sunday, April 20, 1930

Today is Easter Sunday.  But Nobody came.  So in the afternoon we drove out to Aunt Mary’s for supper.  We just got home and got the chicks put away and everything done, and it just poured down rain, thundering and lightning.  The way we heard Kean’s found Mrs. Agnes Hirst death in bed this morning.  If she would have lived until May 20, she would of been 69 years old.  She is to be buried Wednesday afternoon, services at home and then to the private cemetery.  There is to be a dance at (inlegible) Schaefer’s tonite.  It is his birthday but we were not invited.
