  • [ca. 1867]

Diaries: 1867.

Diary entries begin with March 8, 1867, but this whole section is marked cancelled and is re-copied starting April 8, 1867. It begins with a record of Tobias' trip to Missouri to see his father, leaving his wife Mary Schantz (nee Moyer) with their 3-year old son Orpheus and new baby Etta, born the previous October. Tobias' father Benjamin with his second wife Margaret and children had gone to homestead near Wellville, west of St. Louis, in 1866. Tobias records his impressions of the countryside, the people, the prospects, the discouragement of all but his father with life in Missouri (March 17th). On July 2 he returns to Canada to where he is then living (near "Campden" --Grimsby within walking distance.) Throughout the diary Tobias records the weather and a daily health bulletin, letters sent and received, as well as his daily reading. He goes through periods of recording his meals. Tobias also lists all the work he does every day. He mentions setting the water for porridge, making the bed, polishing his son's shoes, carrying the baby to church, etc. On Nov. 9 he took a bath, on Nov. 25 he "did not sleep short of midnight. Was talking with Mary about my thought, troubles about religion ...". All parts of the diary have been filled with writing, dating as far as 1889 -- some accounts, recipes both household and medical (many give source), a record of the family tree -- births, marriages, deaths, transcribed songs, and an account probably written in Conestogo ca. 1875 of his spiritual trials and tribulations dating from 1862 and his efforts to achieve inner peace. This account is continued in the "other book," although it is not clear what book this referred to.

Initially the entries are written daily, but the latter entries are sporadic. A synopsis of 1870 written by Shoults is also contained in this diary.The diary entries indicate that Shoults has given up teaching at this point and is engaged in working for the Christian Church full-time. Reference is made to the sermons which he prepared and delivered, to church services and meetings he attended, to a Christian conference, and to baptisms and funerals. Some lists of names of converts to the church are included in this diary along with the the name of the place where these individuals first embraced this new religion, the date of their baptism, and the date when they were first united with the church. Reference is also made in this diary to family, social, and parish visits (including the names of many friends and acquaintances), to farming activities, and shopping and errands run by him.

Diary No. 4, Mar. 14, 1870-Aug. 1870.

Ca. [40] p. ms. diary in copy book kept by J. H. Shoults. This diary was written from Shoults' home in Whitevale and contains daily entries recording personal, social and professional activities as well as accounts of weather conditions. Although it is clear from this diary that Shoults is still employed as a school teacher and involved in farming activities, the majority of the diary entries make reference to church services or meetings attended by him. It is evident that he is becoming increasingly involved in church activities. He describes church services and meetings he attends (most of which take place at the Christian Church, but some of which take place at the Baptist Church). He also refers to his attempt to establish a Union Sabbath School, as well as his role as teacher of a Bible class, and the small part he has begun to play in preaching during Christian Church services and meetings. Diary entries do, however, continue to make reference to other matters such as social and family visits (including the names of many friends and acquaintances), and to shopping and errands run by Shoults. Once again much reference is made to the price of farm products, food, etc.

Isaac would appear to have been very busy man in 1885, as he records many surveying contracts, deeds registered, plans drawn up, etc., as well as his work as treasurer of the Town Council, a post to which he was appointed on January 9 of that year. His cash accounts for the Council are to be found in a notebook later used by his son, Hervey Bowman, now in SCA274-GA417-3-30. He also records (on Feb. 4) that he performed a marriage.

Sunday School Children's meeting at 3 p.m. 6 speakers took part. It was an interesting time ..."
