Barbara Thompson Saltou, Yuba City, Calif., and her father,
Edward Roden Thompson, Archibald's gggg-grandson, visited 
Monroe County, Ky., in the 1980s, in search of their ancestral
roots. While there, Barbara learned of the existence of the
diary and got permission from a descendant who owns it to make
a hand-written transcript. She and her cousins also made and
donated a copy of the diary to the William B. Harlan Monroe
County Library, Tompkinsville, Ky.
