1751 August 21 (Wednesday). I waited upon the Ladys as far as the Edge of Southborough in their Journey. My sons Ebenezer and Thomas go to mowing at the Island — but by Various Hindrances, did not begin to mow there till late in the forenoon. My Wife grew so ill that we were glad to See Mrs. Forbush (the Midwife) coming to See us. And we detain’d her all night. Mrs. Bekky Warrin with her Child here, and tarrys to her Aunts Labour.
Old “Granny” was the widow of Thomas Forbush.
