From the diary of Ruth Shackleford, 1865 –
Aug. 5 – They are waiting for the sick to get better. Nothing of importance happened. I have been very sick all day.
Sunday, Aug. 6 – Clear and pleasant. I am no better. Frank has his hands full with all the cooking to do and me and the children to wait on.
Aug. 7 – We came as far as Green River, a nice stream, with water as clear as can be and running very swift. They had to raise the wagon beds to cross.
Aug. 8 – I am still sick and feel very sad. The doctor told Frank he would have to stop traveling with me or I could not stand it many days longer. Ann and the Miss Rhynes are washing. Mary Rhyne washed some for me. Frank cut my hair off short and thinned it out as best he could.
Aug. 9 – I have more fever and feel worse. They are all sitting around and look very much discouraged.
Aug. 10 – I feel a little better. The wagons are passing us all the time, going on.
Aug. 11 – I still feel a little better. Nothing of interest has occurred today, only they have been feasting on currant tarts all the time.
Aug. 12 – I feel better though very weak. Frank lifted me out on the wagon and put me on a bed in the shade. The mountains look worse than ever. .
