Dr. Green Diaries - Part 2

The Diaries -

Book One – April 16, 1816 to February 21, 1821
Book Two – February 23, 1821 to January 30, 1824
Book Three – February 1, 1824 to October 29, 1826
Book Four – October 30, 1826 to December 31, 1830

Book Eight – December 6, 1852 to December 31, 1871
Book Nine – January 1, 1872 to November 18, 1885 with the last page written by his son

The fifth column (furthest to the right) titled "Keys" in the tables/spreadsheets below sometimes contains additional information about a specic entry on that page in the diary. If the designation “*NPS.GOV” without quotes appears in the Keys column, it means that there is a reference to something on that page in Clee A. Ace, and Dan Walsh, The Green Family Diaries: A Finding Aid, Catalog Number: LOWE - 1473, Lowell National Historical Park, 2007.
