Custodial history

The Book of Days is believed to have been started by Isabella and Annie Patterson who lived in Nashville, Vaughan. Another relative Erie McCluskie (daughter of Mary Dalziel and Francis McCluskie) was also involved in contirbuting to this book as personal information in her own hand can be found at the end of the book ("Erie Patterson" - as she was eventally married to Charles C. Patterson).

Scope and content

Item consists of one PDF document, containing page scans from a diary entitled "The Book of Days". This account captures personal information regarding people and events in Nashville and the surrounding area. It spans the years of 1901-2006, but primarily focuses on 1901-1939 as additional newspaper clippings appear to have been added ca. 2000-2006. In addition to "The Book of Days" a 3 page history of the William Patterson Family is also included in this accession and details genealogical information about Willima and Mary Jane Patterson and their eight children.
