Mary Rogers Cabot Book of Dates 1866 - 1869

My great grand-aunt, Mary Rogers Cabot (MRC), kept a book of dates. She was born 20 Aug 1856, Brattleboro, Windham County, Vermont to Norman Franklin and Lucy Quincy Tarbell (Brooks) Cabot. She died at the age of 75, 30 Apr 1932, Brattleboro, Windham County, Vermont. She was known at Aunt Molly to my grandmother, Grace Ware (Holbrook) Haskell. I believe that the entries in this book of dates were transcribed by my grandmother because the handwriting looks the same as that in my grandmother's book of dates. Also, the MRC book of dates is written in the back of my grandmother's book. The entries provide valuable insight into this family between the years of 1866 and 1908.
