Adonijah French Ledger (Randolph, Massachusetts)

by French, Adonijah (1789 – 1815)

1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

This ledger was kept by Adonijah French and, before him, his brother-in-law Phinehas Taft between 1789 and 1815. While many pages were a copybook for math issues involving longitude, latitude, surveying, trigonometry, and dialing, entries after Taft's death in 1798 relate to French's shoe business. Some entries relate to cider making, work done, and transportation of shoes, but the ledger entries nonetheless document the early history of the Massachusetts boot and shoe manufacturing industry. The majority of the entries date between 1798 and 1815, but at least one entry from 1789 in Braintree took note on having dreams.
