Volumes 18A and 29

Ellis B. Usher owned sawmills in Hollis, Maine. After his death in 1855, his wife administered his estate and also ran the sawmills and their farm. Volume 29 of this collection contains the estate papers of Ellis Usher and includes an inventory, accounts, bills, and deeds. Additionally, indentures signed by his wife show that she leased at least one of the sawmills after she was in control of the property.

Volume 18A is an account book first used by Mr. Usher as a day book and later by his wife for settling the estate and keeping the accounts of the farm and mills.
