On offer is a fascinating, naïve group of eight [8] original ledgers once owned and handwritten by we believe a doctor named J.P. Wilson of Cedar Bluff Alabama as per an inscription in the 1909 book. [That said we cannot be certain as to ownership as there are two possible ownership inscriptions the other in the 1916 book of J. D. King of Cullman County Alabama. Local researchers should undoubtedly be able to confirm the author.] Through the years 1909, 1910, 1912, 1916, 1918, 1920, 1924 to 1927 readers will find a trove of date regarding this doctor's practice in Northern Alabama. The information includes a daily tally of patients seen, prognosis, medicines given and amount, what he charged for his services, how much the patient paid, and the balance owed to him. These also show some of the trades he made for his services. Many of the births and deaths are recorded. All told the books make for what would through forensic analysis of the records a super picture of the available medical care, types of treatments, ailments and remedies in this rural area of Alabama. Genealogists will no doubt have a fair bit of information. Overall the books are legible though the covers and bindings for the most part are in rough shape. Overall Fair +.
