Augusta Bruchmiller recorded income and expenditures for the family farm from 1890 through 1896 in this ledger book. Otto (husband) and Carl (son) may also have made entries. Expenditures are very detailed and illustrate the types of products and supplies purchased by this farm family. Items purchased include fabric, furniture, magazines, shoes, toothpicks, photographs, soap, starch, and numerous other items. Food supplies that were purchased include baking powder, soda, cranberries, coffee, tea, chocolate, etc. According to the donor, in November 1895, daughter Vera died of "inflammation of the stomach" and entries in the book reflect expenses for a doctor and the graveyard. Income came from the sale of butter, eggs, and other items grown on the farm as well as money earned by the children. The family lived in Sarcoxie Township, Jefferson County, ten miles north of Lawrence, Kansas. Brookmiller was an alternate form of the surname Bruchmiller. This book was loaned for copying by family members.

Creator: Bruchmiller, Augusta
Date: Between January 1890 and March 1896
