FOLSOM LEDGER (Saunders County)
I purchased a ledger at a flea market. This ledger pertains to the FOLSOM
(family Brick, Livery, Feed and Sale Stable, and also Hack & Bus Line that operated
in Ashland, NE. On many of the entries the year was not given. In some cases only
one or two years was given but journal entries appeared both before and after the year
was mentioned. The ledger also contained many loose pieces of paper and additional
information was also copied from them.
