Wakulla Plantation records

 Collection — Box: 158
Identifier: 01-MSS 0-253

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of the accounting books of the Wakulla Plantation. The two items are in poor condition and incomplete. The account book dated 1891-1901. The Epping Hanserd & Co. account, dated 1866, is legible but the bottom part of the page has been torn off. However, there is a Tax Return for 1895, and the other legible papers appear to be individual accounts with various persons. The items listed in the accounts are such as would be listed by the keeper of a commissary. The name "Rehwinkle" also appears in the document, possible as the name of the plantation.
