Hubbard R. Dare Store Ledger
1847-1849
Dareville, Elk Prairie Township


note- We previously did an article concerning Hub's store for the years 1860
to 1870, so we know he operated the store there on Dareville corner for
many years. Among the customers listed in this old ledger are the very 
first settlers and owners of the land in that area and probably very
few native born Jefferson Countians. 


The first entry in the old ledger was April 19, 1847. The last entry was
May 25, 1849. The first customer, Jesse A Dees
