Manuscript Group 302, Osgood and Company, Little Falls, NJ

Records, 1814-1817, 0.15 linear feet / 1 volume

Call Number: MG 302

Processed as part of the "Farm to City" project funded by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.


Payroll records kept by a textile factory in Little Falls, Passaic County, New Jersey.  This volume also includes some accounts of Baldwin and Camp, 1826, a New York grocer.


Administrative History:

Osgood and Company was a textile manufacturer that used the water power of the Passaic River in Little Falls (Passaic County), New Jersey.  This enterprise was owned by Walter F. Osgood (fl. 1814-1817) and predates both of the town’s better-known mills, the Beattie Manufacturing Company Carpet Mill and the New Jersey and Little Falls Carpet Mill.


Provenance Note:

The source of this collection is unknown.


Scope and Content Note:

This volume contains payroll records of the Osgood and Company from 1814-1817.  Unfortunately, due to water damage about one-forth of these records are illegible.  Another company, Baldwin and Camp, later Wilson and Camp, used the volume in 1825-1826 as an account book.  These accounts, however, contain minimal information and are not indexed.
