Identifier: SpC MS 1692-sc
This account book belonged to Scarborough, Maine blacksmith Jonathan Andrews (1746-1806).

Following his death in 1806, his son Ezekiel Andrews (b. 1784), also a blacksmith, took over the account book, which records his daily business from 1806 to 1813. Ezekiel Andrews moved from Scarborough to Kennebec in 1809, and then to Effingham in 1810.
