Hiram Harvey Hurlburt Jr wrote a detailed Autobiography/Diary. A scan of the original handwritten document is here: Diary Hiram Harvey Hurlburt Jr. .PDF

My intention is to transcribe the entire 132 page handwritten document into Wiki format here. In locations where the copy I have is illegible I have tried to guess when there was enough context to make the word choices limited. In other cases I have indicated the illegible portion with question marks.

What follows is a work in progress:

born March 5, 1827 in Ripton, Vt. 
died Jan. 29, 1910 in Buffalo, N.Y.
Chapter 6 of the diary was quoted by Sarah Kaplan in her article The improbable, 200-year-old story of one of America’s first same-sex ‘marriages’ published in the Washington Post on March 20th 2015.

Further chapters to be transcribed from the handwritten version as time allows.
