McEachern family fonds : [1839-1901]

  • CA PCA Acc3192
  • Fonds
  • Microfilmed 1980, Photocopied 1984

This fonds consists of an exercise book belonging to John McEachern, a diary of the McEachern family for the period 1839 to 1901, and a McEachern genealogy written by John McEachern in 1866. The diary, which was started by John McEachern and continued by his sons Lauchlin and Dougald after his death, contains daily accounts of weather and life on the farm. The end of the diary also includes a section entitled "Fragments of Family History" (1850) written by John outlining his family's Scottish roots and their emigration to Prince Edward Island. This appears to have been the predecessor to his more detailed McEachern genealogy.

Upon taking up his duties in the parish of Cascumpec, Dyer keeps a regular diary of his pastoral activities including where he preached, the size and composition of the congregation, the text of his sermon, special occasions such as the consecration of the church by the Bishop at Cascumpec, the establishing of Sunday schools and prayer meetings, and his constant and continuing visits to members of his congregation. He also describes the weather, travel conditions and mode of transportation, the state of his health, family matters, and events, particularly deaths in the communities for which he was responsible. He also describes his trips to Port Hill, St. Eleanor's and Charlottetown where he was often a guest preacher.
