This collection consists of two diaries kept by Hattie French on two separate family summer vacations.
Hattie French was born in Buffalo, Erie County, New York in 1859, and died 28 December 1923. Her parents were Edward French
and Abigail Furman, and she had one sister, Abbie. Her sister married Frank Crowell and relocated near Lakeside, California,
and Hattie and her mother followed soon after. Hattie and Abbie adopted the orphaned children of a relative. The family was
active in the formation of the Lakeside Presbyterian Church, and were members of the church for many years.
