Edward Carrington, son, was killed in the Civil War in St. Marks, Florida in the Natural Bridge Conflict on March 6, 1865 but the family did not get the news until March 22, 1865. In 1871 the son Edwin was married to Charlotte (nicknamed Lottie), born April 9. 1847 and the couple moved to Scio, NY. Edwin then moved to Bay City, Michigan it appears, in 1875. His wife and son Winny, born in 1873 did not move with him to Michigan but rather stayed in Scio, NY. Edwin traveled extensively on business, by train and then in the later years by automobile and visited his family about every two months coupled with his business trips. Edwin was Secretary and Treasurer of the Bay City Building Company, Rifle Room Company and Ausable Lumber Company in Michigan. Edwin and Lottie's son, Winny, died at the age of two years and eights months on 2/15/1876 and father did not make it home in time. A daughter Sarah was born in 1876; a son Eddy was born in 1877 and a daughter Gracie in 1882. Some of the earlier years have diaries from more than one member of the family. Edwin's diaries of 1875 - 1913 are both diaries as well as his business day planners. All have notations at the back of expenses and costs. As a hobby he enjoyed duck hunting. In 1901 Edwin and Lottie became grandparents by Sarah. The diaries mention both the deaths of Lincoln and McKinley. Several diaries have newspaper articles tucked at the back. One is an article about Mrs. Abraham Lincoln. There are two articles about how the Edward Carrington Sr. family made their "fortune" in 1874. THIS IS A SENSATIONAL AND UNIQUE MULTI GENERATIONAL FAMILY HISTORY THAT WOULD BE THE PRIDE AND CENTERPIECE OF ANY SERIOUS DIARY COLLECTOR.
