Burton Family Diaries

by Burton Family (1865 – 1920)

8 folders (0.8 linear feet)

The Burton Family Diaries were written by Henry Melvin, Ada Bogardus, and Julia Burton in Romulus, New York. Henry Melvin Burton, who was a farmer, postmaster, and insurance salesman, wrote the nine diaries between 1865 and 1873 when he was married to his first wife, Sarah Hill, with whom he had his daughter Julia. After Sarah's death, he married the younger Ada Bogardus in 1893. Ada wrote the diaries that date 1897 to 1900, 1902 to 1904, 1906 to 1907, 1912, 1916, 1918, and 1920. However, when Henry died in January 1916, Julia wrote entries in the diary. The diaries include entries about daily life in rural upstate New York, but also mention national events such as the assassination of President Lincoln, the beginning of the Spanish-American War in 1898, and presidential elections. In 1920, Ada was purportedly one of the first women to vote in Seneca County. She worked for the Mount Green Cemetery Association.
