I now have three autobiographies / journals online:

My great-grandfather's journal, "An Autobiography of O.A. McFarland", was written between 1895 and 1903. It contains a history of the McFarland family as well as information about life in the 19th century.

A second journal by O.A. McFarland, "A Record of the Family," which includes stories about family members as well as a birth, death, and marriage section that is comparable to bible records.

The Autobiography of Elsie Sisson McFarland Chavannes is the story of the early life of my grandmother Elsie Sisson, who was born in 1890 in Monona County, Iowa. She tells about her childhood and her first job as a country school teacher.
