 “Community” was reinforced by births and deaths, many of which were noted by Dinsmoor. ​ Since death was such a presence in society and could strike a person of any age, people in the nineteenth century seem to have been better at weaving it into their everyday lives. ​ By sitting up with the sick, comforting them, and witnessing their demise, Dinsmoor and others were preparing themselves for their own unavoidable futures. ​ On his 77th birthday, he wondered, “How long shall it be ere my change comes?​” ​ Questions such as this were contemplated by neighbors of different faiths as they came together for Church meetings, Sunday schools, and funerals. ​ Dinsmoor’s journal (soon to be available online at the [[Boone County Public Library]]), illustrates the importance of community in one small corner of Boone County. “Community” was reinforced by births and deaths, many of which were noted by Dinsmoor. ​ Since death was such a presence in society and could strike a person of any age, people in the nineteenth century seem to have been better at weaving it into their everyday lives. ​ By sitting up with the sick, comforting them, and witnessing their demise, Dinsmoor and others were preparing themselves for their own unavoidable futures. ​ On his 77th birthday, he wondered, “How long shall it be ere my change comes?​” ​ Questions such as this were contemplated by neighbors of different faiths as they came together for Church meetings, Sunday schools, and funerals. ​ Dinsmoor’s journal (soon to be available online at the [[Boone County Public Library]]), illustrates the importance of community in one small corner of Boone County.
