                     The Diaries series consists of Jones family diaries, most belonging to John W. Jones, and contain information about the building of the North Middletown and Cane Ridge turnpike and toll collections on it, local church life, family events, slaves, and local news and weather. They also include stock breeding records, data on the employment of farm hands, and loan records. Frequent fishing expeditions to nearby mountains are described in detail and weekly trips to court days in surrounding communities resulted in a continuing record of prices of commodities.
