The James and Martha Murdock McMillan Family

Life on a 19th Century Farm in Greene County, Ohio


Welcome!

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, comprising over 12,000 pages. This website 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.
