JoLee's Notes.

   

   The following was submitted by E. Jack Gregory 19 July 1999. It is a fairly complete list of about 100 names in an old Mill Grove ledger.

      Included, as a matter of interest, is a list of typical items sold and the prices. Also, there were entries made for loans to customers. The earliest entries are dated in May 1836 and the latest in November 1837.

      Jack Gregory added: "Each of the ledger pages is headed, in large letters, 'MillGrove' with the year shown. This ledger dates from the same period of time that mail came here [then the Josephus Gregory home, now occupied by E. Jack Gregory] addressed to 'Mill Grove Post Office'."
