Collection Myers Store Ledger Collection
Object Name Ledger
Scope & Content BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Meyers Store was located at Edom in Linville, Rockingham County in the mid 1800's. Mary Sue McDonald's father's uncle owned Myers Store as well as a store in Timberville.

SCOPE AND CONTENT:
These 5 (five) ledgers of Meyers Store at Edom in Linville, Rockingham County, were found in the attic of the house on the Wenger Homestead (built in 1825) in Linville (across from Linville Elementary school). The house passed from the Wenger's, to Miller's, to McDonald's. Mr. McDonald believes the ledgers were brought to the Wenger home by Joe W. Miller (father-in-law) from Bridgewater. Mary Sue McDonald is the wife of Charles and daughter of Joe. Ledgers will be of value to researchers studying the county's mercantile history.

Pages from the Wenger family bible containing genealogical data have been photocopied. Original bible has been returned to donors.
