The Diary of Miss Hattie Alexander
McHenry, Illinois, USA
Written by Harriet Elizabeth “Hattie” Alexander Swan of McHenry, Illinois – my great great grandmother. Locations mentioned include Illinois, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Wisconsin. Many, many surnames from this area are included. I transcribed this from a distant cousin’s copy of the original manuscript that my grandfather, Wilder Morris Bosworth, DDS, had transcribed from Hattie’s diary. I absolutely love reading this diary.
