Diary of Martha Ann Hancock Wheat and one letter to her. Martha Ann Hancock Wheat was born in 1823 in Bedford County, Va. Around 1846, she married Zachariah J. Wheat, a widower, with whom she had seven children. The family lived on a small farm in the vicinity of Lynchburg, Va. Diary entries begin around 1850 with Wheat summarizing her religious experiences. She never specified to which denomination she belonged, but often expressed her concern for "truly devoted Christians" of all sects. Through 1860, most of the diary entires are musings on the transitory nature of human life. Entries between 1861 and 1863 record Wheat's thinking on the tragedy of war. Having abandoned her diary late in 1863, Wheat took it up again for one last entry in 1886, in which she listed persons of her acquaintance who did not survive the Civil War. Diary entries take up 107 pages; an additional 98 pages consist of poems, hymns, and Bible verses. The letter, dated 7 June 1845, from Zachariah J. Wheat to Martha Ann Hancock, acknowledges her acceptance of his proposal of marriage.
