Biography

Mrs. F.C. Kennedy was the proprietress of a boarding house in Truckee, Calif. (1878-1881). She may have later operated a ranch near Stockton, Calif. (c1891-1892), although evidence on two receipts (1915) found in the account book suggest that Gus Workings may have operated the Stockton farm. In both situations this slender account book holds daily records of individuals and expenses involved in the two commercial activities.

Scope and Content

In its Truckee boarding house section [pp. 1-106] the Kennedy Account Book records date, name of roomer [there were 32 altogether], length of rental period and fee (1878-1881). In the Stockton ranch section [pp. 114-116] the account book records date, name of employee [T. Ferguson and Gus Workings], type of work done and hours spent. There is an alphabetical index to names in the Truckee portion of the account book. Two receipts found in the account book, both dating from 1915, name a "J.A. Workings" in the transactions they record.
