Correspondents include George W. Applegate, George W. Austin, the Bank of Woodland, and the Yolo County Treasurer. These letters
often discuss farming, life in Applegate, California, financial dealings, and other subjects.
Jefferson Wilcoxson was born on February 24, 1809 in Mercer County, Kentucky to Isaac and Priscilla Wilcoxson. In 1819, he
emigrated with his family to Missouri.
