Description

Baltzer Yonson was born on 10 October 1774 and died c.1850. Yonson married Mary Thompson, born in 1799, and they had 10 children. The descendants of Yonson settled on Johnson as their last name (though the collection includes several variations), developing a machinery business in the 20th century under the name of R. P. Johnson.

The collection consists of receipts dating from 1803-1859. The items in the collection include tax receipts, estate bills for clothes, machinery, auctions, and other ephemera, mostly belonging to Baltzer (Palser) Yonson (Johnson) and his wife, Mary Thompson.
