Many thanks to Nancy Cioch, who carefully transcribed the diary with a magnifying glass, then generously allowed this to be shared with all who are interested. There are many wonderful details of a life now gone with many names of those who exist in faded photographs. This is a real treasure! Thanks Nancy! Another debt of thanks goes to Nancy for carefully rechecking the diary after the html copy was made, before letting the public view it.

Maggie Timmerman, Nancy's mother supplied the antique postcards of the area for use in the diary. Neither Nancy or Maggie have a photo of Willard Kilts.
