In the aftermath of Hurricane, Ida a 270 year old diary was found at Sickmans Mill. During the flooding a secret compartment was knocked open. Hidden in a dummy grain elevator were a number of documents with one especially unique and rare diary. Preliminary examination seems to have belonged to Sean Scanlon, an Irish immigrant who came to America in 1750 or 1751. It also appears that it has been passed from generation to generation and kept up by his successors. The diary is currently being inspected and verified by a local historian and there will be more to follow once we get a chance to review the contents upon its return.
