Hello, just looking at an old ledger that I got from my grandma. I've had it for a while and decided to inspect it closer. It appears to be the ledger for the Argenbright Bros. company from around 1909.It has invesments, expenses, gains and losses. At the end it has several pages dedicated to the dissolution of the company and how they decided to divide everything. The partners appear to be: J. L. Argenbright, J.P. Argenbright, W. M. Argenbright and W.H.W. Argenbright. W.H. Browning appears to be an important figure as well. At the very front of the ledger it has a small glued newspaper clipping that says, "Final settlement of estate of William H. and Amanda J. Browning, minors, now of age filed and approved. Balance due wards $856.86. Final receipts filed and guardian discharged."
It's a pretty cool book! My grandparents both grew up around Benton Missouri, so I am not sure how my grandma got it. She was also an antique collector, so I don't if she got it from antique shopping, or because somehow knew the family. I tend to think the former... but you never know. I'll keep having a look at it, and let you know if I notice anything else. The handwriting is really fancy and hard to read!
