Mary Ann Ashbridge Papers
Scope and Content
This collection consists of a diary that chronicles the work of a young woman named Mary Ann Ashbridge during the annual cycle of running a household and dairy farm in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Having a chance to sit down, even for a few moments, was so rare that Mary Ann noted it in her diary. She was one of a number of young women and girls at home, and their activities are also described. Members of the household travel to Chester and West Chester, Pennsylvania as well as Wilmington, Delaware. The death of H. Ashbridge, possibly Mary Ann's family member, at the Friends Home is noted on 9 December 1893 in Susan Hibberd’s diary (see MC 132).
