Edward County Archives and has the accession number A2001.016.084 100a labelled Journal 1. Note from Robynne Rogers Healey - Anne Adams in Picton
suggests that this is not Lydia H aight's book. Its contents indicate that it is the
diary of Deborah M ullet Haight Bowerman. Perhaps she used one of Lydia’s
old books. Transcribed by Lydia W ytenbroek, history student at Trinity
W estern University, Langley, British Columbia and posted here with her
permission. Pam Noxon, archivist at the PEC Archives, also grants permission
for this posting. Thanks to Dr. Robynne Rogers Healey. Associate Professor at
