Notes:
Winslow, a farmer and carpenter, owned and operated a farm outside Sweet Home, Missouri. He was born on September 28, 1819 in Cumberland County, Maine. He and Leanna Ann Smith were married September 18, 1843 in Springfield, Illinois. It is evident from the diary that Mr. Winslow was an upright, well-respected, active member of the community with a wide circle of friends and neighbors. While the diary makes no direct reference to either financial hardship or wealth there is an overall impression of a reasonable standard of living for the time and place maintained by farming and Mr. Winslow's carpentry.
