  • From Scott Brandon (GGGrandchild of HHH Jr):
    • I believe that Hiram's third or fourth wife (I forget which one) was a real tyrant that eventually tried to kill him!!
  • HHH Jr wrote a detailed Diary/Autobiography. The document in its entirety can be read at the link below:
  • From Diary of Hiram Harvey Hurlburt Jr - Chapter 13
    • At age 15 killed a neighbor in an incident at his father's mill. From the diary: "As I attended to the mill a good deal, I kept a level (Handspike) made from a small spruce tree about two and a half inches think, neatly shaved and convenient to handle the logs. A neighbor by the name of Martin Powers took this lever and used it in place of a skid to roll logs up on the pile front of the mill, and when he had used it I would find it broken. I made another and told Powers I did not wish him to use it for a skid. But Powers was a wrestler and won at times at elections and raising of buildings. He was a married man, probably twenty three years old. The next day he came with a load of logs, came in the mill and grasped my lever. I took it away from him, father being present cautioned Powers to let me alone, for one of us would get hurt. But Powers clinching me side hold and I flung him to the floor as quick as thought! He was badly hurt. Anyway he kept running down. He sent for me one day and told the wrestling would be his life, and he told me I was not to blame, that he had wrestled with many and never one so quick as I was. I was a good deal affected to think he was going to die, and I went to father with the fact. Father said, "I was not to blame. Powers begun by clinching first." But there was always a feeling, like, I wish it had not happened. I noticed father and mother made a quite a number of donations to the widow after his death."
