A Diary kept by Amy Oliver LLOYD née JACKSON (1874-1962). She was the daughter of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915) and Amelia Lydia DARE (1851-1944) and was one of several family members who showed great interest in our shared family history. Although I was in England while she was still alive, regrettably we never met. NOTE: The footnotes are incomplete. I still do not know who all these people are.
