THE ACCOUNT BOOK OF MALCOM NICHOLSON
of Chatham Co, NC

(with connections to Lee and Moore Counties)

Extracted & Transcribed by Sue Ashby,
with permission from Anne Powell
                                                                                                                        © Anne Powell-2001

Malcom Nicholson was a blacksmith (and a tanner?) in Chatham Co. These people were customers of his and these are the accounts they had, with him. Anne Powell, one of his gggg-grandaughters has possession of this book and kindly allowed me to copy, extract and transcribe it, so that all of you may share in the information.
There are  entries that  don't make sense or are unreadable; many scribbles, numbers and words that are archaic. Mostly, it is repair of farm equipment, shoeing of horses and tanning of hides.
Mostly, this will just help you place your ancestor in this place at this time and some of these names are not found very often in Chatham Co. records.
