Seven generations of the Grave family residing at the Deacon John Grave House, beginning in 1685 and spanning 300 years, kept very detailed account books involving trade and business transactions including food, clothing, transportation, livestock, etc. Here is one example of these account pages, showing transactions made by Hannah Grave from January 1 through July 3, 1696. A more legible copy of the page appears next to the original.
