Description
This account book (1894-1895) bears no reference to George Minor, but his authorship seems fairly certain, since three-fourths of the customers listed herein are Collegeville area farmers. Collegeville customers included: William Brown; Fred T. Eaton; Frederick Fetti; L.S. Foss; George S. Hall; J.W. Kerrick; A. Lawson; Timothy Minahen; Moses Prater; and, D.M. Walrod. Other patrons of note included: Cyrus Moreing (Stockton) and Buck & Earl. 198 pp. ledger, no index
Background
George F. Minor operated a blacksmith shop in Collegeville, a farming hamlet three miles east of Stockton, Calif., between 1880 and 1900. Much of Minor's work activity seems to have involved the repair of grain harvesting machinery and buggies.
