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.
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.
The source of this collection is unknown.
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.
