Martha McMillan Journal Collection

On January 15, 1867, her wedding day, Martha E. Murdock McMillan, a farmer's wife living four miles outside of Cedarville, Ohio, would begin writing in her journal daily about her life, the farm, her family, her community, and her faith. She would maintain that practice until two weeks before her death in August 1913, resulting in 46 years of journals. This collection shares Martha's writings and the work of Cedarville University faculty and students in transcribing the journals, responding to their content, and engaging in research about the events of Martha's life and her world.
