I went to church
to day with Lillb

O.D. = Orville Daniel Carlisle
Belle = Clara Belle Carlisle, daughter of Orville.

Hannah L. Carlisle was visiting Orville through Sunday.

I'm not clear as to who wasn't talking to whom.

Lillb? Orville had another daughter, Lillian M. Carlisle. Orville's wife was Lydia. I was surprised to read that Ashley went to church.
