ALEXANDER GRANGE #304

TIMELINE

A RECORD OF ACQUIRING GOODS & SERVICES

PAYING TAXES & HELPING OTHERS

During the summer of 2010 Grange members did some housecleaning. About 8 parcels of stuff were hauled to the Archives. In February 2011 Grange member Rhonda Oakes went through all the stuff and organized the good and discarded the bad. In between was a file folder of miscellaneous stuff, too good to throw away, but lacking glue to hold it together and make it of value. She turned this folder over to John Dudley.

The stuff is good. To help it tell its story, it was arranged in a binder by name of vender, and arranged by time on this sheet. People and businesses, ie. venders, from other towns noted in (parenthesis). An * asterisk follows venders with more than one slip and under year of first slip.

Some slips were signed by three Grange members, probably to approve payment. Forty different signers are listed here in [brackets].
