Scope and Contents note

One account book (1829-1851) of William Whiteley containing entries made in Toledo (1837), Cillicothe (1838), Zanesville (1840), Washington (1848) and Lansing (1848). From 1829 to 1836 Whiteley may have been a shoe dealer, since all entries in the period are for shoes. Other commodities, including food, wine, hardware, clothing, room and board, and labor wages, are entered in the ledger beginning in 1836. In 1848 most of the entries are for household items, livestock, and farm equipment.

Also included are a time schedule for the Great Fort Wayne and Pennsylvania Line, a calling card for a Lansing liquor and cigar shop, and an advertising pamphlet for a cement brick and block machine (1905, n.d.).
