 Collection
Collection Number: A&M.4215

Scope and Contents

Account ledger of a general merchandise store in the eastern panhandle of Virginia, (later West Virginia) documenting transactions of goods purchased, services rendered as payment on accounts and balances owed. The money amounts are recorded in English currency denominations. The store was probably owned and operated by the William Brown family. Several local family names listed as patrons include Morgan, Shepherd, Hoyt, Osborne, Jones, and Richardson. There are also two loose papers; one documents a 1794 account for Alexander Brown, the other, undated, has several dollar amounts and calculations written in pencil with the Maryland towns of Frederick, Boonsboro, and Cumberland listed at the top.
