  • Fike (Didamie Emaline Hicks) Diary, 1843-1845
    apparently successful doubling its real estate value from 700 to 1 400 in the ten years between the 1850 and 1860 censuses On April 19 1845 their first child Claudius L Fike was born Claudius was followed by a sister Laura L and brother George O who were twelve and ten years old respectively in 1860 The 1850 census indicates that they had a one year old son called Robin although he is not recorded in subsequent censuses By 1870 Claudius had moved away from home and married Mary Ann Goodwin born November 16 1848 According to the 1870 census records he had a new son called Russel born that March He did not own any property and was earning a living as a teacher in Suffletown Laurens County South Carolina Didamie died on September 19 1875 Her husband out lived her by nearly thirty years dying April 24 1901 Scope and Content The Didamie Emaline Hicks Fike diaries consist of a handwritten diary for the month of September 1843 when she was unmarried and a typed copy of her diary for October 1844 to April 1845 during which time she was married Both diaries highlight Didamie s daily life significant events that occurred and her private thoughts They reveal the lifestyle of subsistence farmers which was hard and revolved around work the weather and illness The handwritten diary is difficult to read but it is possible to discern what was important to Didamie in her pre married life Diary entries begin with a mention of the weather and if she had to go to school that day She does not indicate whether she attended school as a student or as her age and son s subsequent profession may suggest as an instructor Didamie also recorded who she saw and met each day and the news they brought her This gossip consisted primarily of who was sick dead or dying Of particular importance to her was hearing from G George Fike Although she does not detail her feelings for George in her diary she constantly mentions seeing G or that G did not come today Also the handwritten diary closes with the phrase I believe in you I am contented with you Oh I love you which may refer to her future husband The second diary is typed and covers Didamie s married life in the months prior to the birth of her first child No direct mention is made of her pregnancy although her diary entries record her feeling bad and tired as well as mentioning the making of a crib and bonnet Her life revolved around work on the farm She records washing cooking spinning shucking having peas ground for the cow and making clothes In addition she mentions her husband s work such as killing hogs buying supplies and helping a neighbor build a wagon shed However clearly Mr F s absences from the farm were more significant to Didamie Her entries constantly mention her feeling lonesome
