1 item

James Underwood and John Underwood, both of Nashua, N.H. John Underwood is listed in the Nashua city directory for 1856 as being a “yeoman.”

The “book” is inscribed as “John Underwood’s Book, Nashua, Saturday, March 27th, 1858,” but seems to have belonged to his father or perhaps grandfather, James Underwood (his name also appears on the inside cover) since it includes, from front to back, accounts from 1754 to 1755, warrants and justice writs from July 13, 1764 to April 6, 1772, and a day book, being a list of notes and accounts, from June 1772 to Dec 1774.
