Houk Newton Reunion Photo

Hi, I came across this photo when doing a follow-up search to an article in the 1910 New Castle News about that year's reunion. At the time it was stated that John Newton had kept a diary all of his life (1771-1847) and that it was in the possession of E.N. Houk (or E.N.Newton), but this was not clearly stated. Except that the current owner of the diary was the great-grandson of John. Does anyone know if this diary still exists and where it is?! It seems that descendants have been searching forever to determine from where in NJ (or VT), John Newton originated. Any assistance out there would be appreciated. And, are these reunions still going on?!
