Comments: Lot #9. You are buying a lot of four (4) handwritten receipts acknowledging the receipt of funds from Louis Schaefer from 1847 to 1849 with one date unreadable. Each of the four is from a different person. They are readable if you try real hard although one appears to be in French. All are in surprisingly nice shape for being over 160 years old.
Louis Schaefer was born in France in 1815 and immigrated to America with his family in 1830. They settled near Canton, Ohio. Louis clerked in a Canton dry goods store before taking up law in 1840. He became quite a prominent citizen in the growing city of Canton. He was an attorney, a city councilman, and the builder/owner/operator of the second opera house to be built in the state of Ohio. He was a driving force behind the formation of the Canton City Fire Department, the City Waterworks, and the building of the County Courthouse. He served on the local school board and was instrumental in bringing the Diebold Safe Company to Canton. Schaefer died in 1889. These receipts are an authentic piece of Canton/Stark County history.
