John Martin of Bangor (1823-1904) began writing and illustrating a journal in 1864 to provide details of his life and activities for his wife, children, and descendants.
This illustration, on page 130 of the 650-page journal, show the home of Ezekiel Hopkins as it appears in 1840. Martin wrote, "The above premices presents the only instance that I know of where God and man had formed a copartnership to plan a residence for man and beast where every convenience both natural and mechanical were combined."
When he was a teenager, Martin worked for Hopkins on his farm and in his store.
