Store account books

 Collection — Box: 4
Identifier: 01-MSS 1986-005

Scope and Contents

Two account books which record purchases of dry goods, food, seed, wagons, and guano (fertilizer). There are indications from accounts carried forward that earlier and later account books existed. There is no evidence of ownership; because of the locations of the accounts near Metcalfe, Georgia or just over the Leon County, Florida line, there may have been a country store in business at the time.

Includes accounts for L. E. Bradley, T. P. Strickland, Henry Vickers, Springwood Plantation owned by Percy Chubb, Elsoma Plantation owned by C. Merrill Chapin, Norias Hunting Club, Pebble Hill Plantation owned by Elizabeth Ireland Poe, Friendship Church in Metcalfe, Colored School in Metcalfe, Ross Hill School, and Maloy Plantation.
