Albertson family papers

Container List


The Albertson family papers are arranged in eight series, five of which are devoted to individual family members. The remaining three series are for miscellaneous family members, the Plymouth Friends meeting house, and miscellaneous documents not identified as related to any of the Albertson family members.

Individuals of the first five series are Jacob Albertson (father of Josiah), Josiah Albertson, Alice Albertson, Benjamin Albertson, Jacob Albertson (brother of Josiah). Within each series the material is arranged basically by type (correspondence and documents) in chronological order. Exceptions to the chronological order are the composition books, ledgers, and account books which span a number of years and appear at the ends of the series.

Contents of the collection are housed in one record center carton, with one ledger removed to a separate manuscript box.
