Eli Vick's Ledger

The following information was furnished by Dale Cantrell of Liberty, Tn.
"Thanks Dale!"

July 17th, 1845 -- December 15th, 1845
These names were taken from the original ledger book, which is in the possession of Ed Organ, Nashville, TN, a direct descendant of Eli Vick. A copy is held by Dale Givan Cantrell, Liberty, Tn. I have tried to copy these as accurately and exactly as they appear in the ledger. Most of these are "charges", and below each name is a list of the goods purchased. It was nearly impossible to list/decipher the items bought and I decided that the names were most important, as the 1840 census does not give as much information as we would wish. When a notation is given, i.e. (son of John), this is not listed in every charge, but occasionally.

This store was located on Eli Vick's place, near Allen Bluff and Forks of Pike, DeKalb Co. Tn.
