Pride, general merchant of Haverford, 1848-1857; Joseph Richards, lawyer, 1835-1854; and Robert H. Rose estate, 1836-1858. As agriculturists and trustees of large tracts of land in Susquehanna County, several of their records concern lumbering and farming, including William H. Jessup's diary of farm work, 1871-1896.
