Joseph Warren Hindman Ledger

Joseph Warren Hindman's
Ledger

The following information is contained in Joseph Warren Hindman's personal ledger. This is apparently the Hindman equivalent of the family bible. Joseph's handwriting was difficult to read, but I have done my best to interpret his scratchings. The final entry in his ledger was his wife's death. She was 37.

The original information is in black. I’ve added comments in blue. Also note that I've made corrections to names when I feel confident that he probably just misspelled it (e.g., Michle for Michael, Clade for Claude, etc).
