Found in 8 Collections and/or Records:
Papers, 1868-1942, of the King and Orndorff families of Van Buren Furnace, Shenandoah County, Va. The collection includes papers, 1891-1942, of Early Orndorff, documents in German of a maternal ancestor, Emily Wilde, who came to America in 1877 and letters, 1882-1890, written to Frank King and his wife from G. H. Rochling and Ferd Lipfert, Annaberg, Germany.
Accounts, bills and receipts, primarily 1878-1885, of M. M. Tankersley of Fife, Goochland Co., Va. who was apparently a merchant. Also in the collection are accounts, 1893-1910, (including tax receipts for Shenandoah Co., Va.) for Paul C. Orndorff and Early L. Orndorff. Collection is arranged in folders by date.
Ledger, 1891-1909, of Joseph H. Tisinger of Shenandoah County, Virginia. He seems to have owned some sort of store, as there are entries for various meats as well as wood. However, it also seems as though Tisinger was involved in some baking activities, as there are lines that detail payment of taxes.
Artificial collection of papers relating to various counties in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Includes current West Virginia Counties of Berkeley, Hardy, Jefferson, Morgan, Nicholas and Pendleton because the material was generated when these counties were part of Virginia.
This collection consists of a physician's daybook kept by Dr. George Williamson of New Market, Virginia, whose practice extended throughout the Shenandoah Valley. Spanning 1807-1819, the daybook records names of patients, treatments, and payments (for both Caucasians and African Americans). Treatments range from inoculations and venereal disease to all night vigils.
