1 THEODORE STEWART 1913 - 1923 ARCHIVE OF ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARIES AND WORK JOURNALS OF A POPULAR FARMINGTON MAINE ARCHITECT AND CARPENTER
FARMINGTON MAINE ME 1913 Very Good 
On offer is a super archive of ten [10] manuscript diaries handwritten by Theodore Stewart an architect and carpenter from Farmington, Maine and who must have been very well thought of given he worked on so many houses and buildings in the area. He was born in 1841 [making him in his 70's when he wrote these] and he was drafted for the civil war on July 1st, 1863. He had 5 children and was married to Lydia Baldwin for over 50 years until her death in 1916 which was caused by heart disease. A carpenter by trade he must have worked for everyone at one time or another including F Stanley, Banks Drug Store, E Hardey, Dr Pratt, Post Office, Town Schools, Town water pipes, E E Flood, H A Titcomb, 1st National Bank, People National Bank, Tarbox Whittier, D M Bonney Stoddard House, New England Telephone, Blacksmith, Electric Light co, and the Baptist Church just to mention a few. He worked on the floats and steamer house doors and the walks. He worked on the cabins and cottages in Oquossoc, Haines Landing, Rangeley and the Kemankege plus he did a lot of fishing. He also mentioned that one of the Titcombs was killed by an auto in 1915. Lydia died in 1916 and he kind of went downhill from there. Then he lost a daughter in 1918. Historians and researchers of the area will find his diaries a history of progress of the town and its inhabitants in the early 20th Century as he was constantly building throughout all of them; 1913, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1920, 1921 and 1923. All are full except the last one and that has entries in it until February 16th. He was 82 years old then. The books are 3¼" x 7½". Overall VG.
