Summary
The diaries and loose papers in this collection date from 1880 to 1892. the diaries offer a view of activities and entertainment in Elkhart and LaGrange counties of Indiana. School activities are regularly reported up to 1888, and farm chores are given in as much detail as the duties of teaching. Churchgoing occurs throughout all evenings of the week, with Yoder reporting his attendance at Mennonite, Dunkard, and Amish meetings. Family visting is recorded, with Mr. Yoder making reference to his father and mother, his wife Etta, and his children. Other activities reported are ice cream festivals and the presentations of the community lyceum. The last folder of the collection consists of financial papers containing assorted promissory notes, tax receipts (including some issued in Kansas to John Richey), two poems of Abner Yoder, two undated financial accounts, a newspaper clipping, and certification of Michael Doff having worked off his road tax (issued by Jermiah Yoder)
