There is another diary that you should be included here – that of Benjamin Benedict Crawford, Loyalist, of Kings Co. NB. The diary covers many years but the data for 1816 and 1817 are especially of interest in relation to this project. He was a farmer and kept detailed notes re: weather, snow still in the fields in June, crop failures, river conditions on the St. John and Kennebecasis Rivers, etc. There is a transcribed copy at the local museum, the Kings County Museum, in Hampton. Their contact email is email@example.com.
Thank you for putting this information together. I have enjoyed reading the historical documents.
