This a diary kept by John Cane McKinney. It is of the period of 1 Jan 1857 through 14 October 1861. There are a few missing pages and some no entries during this time. John Cane McKinney was the son of William McKinney and Nancy McAllister. They lived in Section 2 of New Salem Township. He gives what he did each day and gives the weather for each day. It is a very revealing history of what and how a person lived during those days. He gives a lot of interaction of the people and events of those days. Even if one does not have relatives in that area, it gives an insight of how life was in those days. One should mention that Lucile Long graciously gave permission to have the diary transcribed and is owed a debt of gratitude.
