Edwin Congdon (1833 - 1919) kept diaries for much of his life. The following transcript from 1848 was made by his descendant Edwin Congdon. The family did not move to what is now known as the Congdon homestead on Middle Road until 1854. It is not been determined yet whether they were living in Clarendon Springs or on Creek Road in 1848. The cover photo is of Edwin in his later years.
