Name Ledger
Object ID FA69.3.114
Date 1797-1816
Dimensions 31 x 19 x 3.5cm
Description From the Servos Collection. This is a sheep skin leather bound ledger dating from 1797 to 1816. It was owned by D. Servos, whose family owned a mill in Niagara. Photos include pages that were dated around the War of 1812. The date 1812 comes up on some sheets but 1813 and 1814 were not found. This may be because of the war going on in the area. Also, D. Servos (unknown whether it was John D. Servos or Daniel Servos) would have participated in the war, most likely in the Lincoln Regiment Militia. However, it does continue with the year 1815. This document can also provide information on goods bought and sold domestically around the time of the war.
