Notes: The Ledgers were found in a wall of the present home of Roy Misner of Somerset.

There are two ledgers. One is dated (starting at) April 1st, 1884 and ends in 1887, and belonged to A. L. (might be A. C. or A. S.) Fisher of Somerset. The second ledger is dated (starting at) Sept 28th, 1894. The second ledger does not seem to have an owner’s name but I assume it belonged to the same gentleman due to its location when found.

Most of the names (not all) in the first ledger are as follows below (please note, some of the initials are hard to read). Please note that sometime before the 1st of March, 1886 the entries are from a business in Waterville. I assume the same Mr. Fisher relocated his store.

The second ledger contains transactions concerning store goods and very few names are used (most are very hard to make out.) I will not be listing names from that ledger.

Along with the two ledgers there is a book with the initials A. S. Fisher, 1874. Mr. Fisher used his seal on the second page in this book. The seal reads:

A. Stanley Fisher
Conveyancer
Notary
And
Tabellion
Public
Aylesford, N. S.

The book is "History of Greece", by William Francis Collier, LL.D., Trinity College, Dublin.

The "Note" page has June 1866.
