1757 Somersworth, New Hampshire Document: Thomas Wallingford, Esq.; Daniel Emery, Jr.
1757-1764 document where Daniel Emery, Jr., promises to pay Thomas Wallingford, Esq., the sum of four pounds and ten shillings. The note was satisfied in March 1764.
The document was found with others that pertain to nearby towns in Maine, and I suspect Thomas and Daniel had family and business on both sides of the border.
