Adolphus F. Gouhenant Inventory
Comment Section

Adolphus Gouhenant's inventory was divided into two sections. Some comments written by Gouhenant dated August 10, 1855, followed the inventory tally. This graphic was scanned from a copy of the inventory which Jack C. Grantham, Jr. provided. Jack made the notation "Bear Cr." in the left hand margin. There appears to be a reference to Bear Cr. in Gouhenant's comments, but I have not determined what the remainder of the sentence says. The sentences below that line are reasonably clear:

"... mon jardin 2 lots pres la brick yard ou [celiu?] vendre four 200 dollars a la fin Janvier 1856. [Tai't fini...?] le marché pour ma maison"

roughly translated: " my garden 2 lots near the brick yard or [the one] to sell for 200 dollars at the end of January 1856. ... [finished?] the market for my house"

The inventory contents were examined and confirmed by another person. His signature at the end of the document appears to be "J. K. Baer."
