JAMES ADDISON MERIWETHER (1855-aft.1931) FARM ACCOUNT BOOK
The farm account book includes a record of expenses of James A. MERIWETHER's
farm near Lynchburg, Virginia. In addition to individual accounts, there are also
accounts for a plaster mill, a bone mill, and a corn mill, operated by MERIWETHER.
The account book appears to be that of Dr. James Addison MERIWETHER, a physician
who also operated a farm at Holcomb Rock in Bedford County, Virginia.
