1 NELSON GREEN [?] 1872 - 1883 ORIGINAL ARCHIVE OF NINE [9] MANUSCRIPT DIARIES DETAILING THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A SOUTH CENTRAL ONTARIO FARMER, LUMBER AND QUARRY MAN
MILTON CAYUGA HAMILTON ONTARIO ONT ON UPPER CANADA 1872 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a super archive of nine [9] original manuscript diaries very full and descriptive of the rural life and times in and around Milton in south-central Ontario. Dated 1872 through 1883, missing 1873, 1880 and 1882, the author, while unidentified in fact, we suggest his name is Nelson Green. There are a number of references to the Green family and some ephemeral clues that local historians, genealogists and collectors of the Milton, Cayuga and Hamilton Ontario area should no doubt be able to confirm his identity. The author leads the simple yet extraordinarily hard life of a church going farmer, lumber and quarryman with a horse charmingly named "Timber". Nelson does a very good job mentioning the names of visitors, business contacts, and the births and deaths and other local events faithfully. He does not live in Milton proper but almost daily he travels there to deliver wood or ice in winter or stone or apples etc. Sometimes he'll make the trip to Hamilton or Cayuga and another number of smaller places like Six Ridges, New Celedon, Burlington Beach, Brontey [sic], Harvey's Mill, Flamborough++. He mentions his: Uncle David, Mildred Brownridge, Marguerite Brownridge, Mathew Dunn, Allen and William Bowman, David Hogg, Roert Forrest, J.P. Walker, Sam Cook, Buddyse Suter (d.01.03.1883), Mary Rixon (d.09.15.1877), Peter Scots, Cousin Isaac Green (d.12.15.1872), James Green, William Forrest, William Cummings (d.04.21.1878) and many, many more. Our author also details the commerce and economy of a rural existence: lumbering, delivering wood, apple orchards and the duties involved, prices realized, yields explained+++. Overall the books are G+.
