Notes for Eliza Anne Irene Ogden

Background:" Eliza Ogden Mead, one of eleven children of Daniel Ogden, was born in 1812 in Walton and married Gabriel Mead in 1837. They had one son, George Mead. Other people mentioned in the diary who seem to be living in the house were a relative, James, and a few boarders.
Some of Eliza's siblings moved to Illinois and Wisconsin. A relative, William Ogden, was the first mayor of the city of Chicago, Illinois and also was the entrepreneur who created the lumber town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin. (In one week in October 1871, William lost much of his property in the Great Chicago Fire and the Peshtigo Fire (one of the greatest natural disasters in American history)."
Eliza kept a diary from 1853 - 1869.
