An active member of the Republican Party, he held many local offices. He invested in railroad and mining stock, and was an organizer and officer in the Clinton cheese factory. The diaries touch upon all these activities, as well as personal and family matters, school and church affairs, anti-slavery sentiment, and his attitude towards immigrant workers.
Besides the diaries, there are lists of town officers and town taxes, 1842-1876, notes on local events, and 1863 records of the Union League of America, Clinton Council. With these are letters from members of the Cheever and Grow families and friends, 1842-1856, mainly in and about Hardwick, Vermont, dealing with family matters and exchange of advice on educational methods, and some Civil War letters. Also present is a volunteer enrollment book, 1863. Also included is an 1869 tintype of Cheever.
