Discovery of Bella (Isabelle) Foye’s Ledger

Today, a ledger belonging to Bella Foye was found. It was donated to us 22 years ago by Sherrie B Neff and she enclosed the following note:

Please find enclosed the receipt book of Bella Foye. Inside the pages of this little leather bound book you’ll find the names of Bella’s cows and accounts from her farm. As you turn the pages, you’ll discover rent receipts and a mention of Bella’s brother Frank. There are also some remedies written in the very front of the book. I hope this donation will benefit someone in their search for family roots.

The ledger appears to cover years 1890-1897.

Today, Bella’s home can be found at the intersection of County Roads 10 and 11.
