1 handwritten original expense account composed by N. Gray of money received and expended for Mr. Thomas Larkin in the period
1851 to 1852. Includes passage to Sacramento, Colusa and Monroeville and payment of taxes on Larkin Children's Rancho and
Jimeno Rancho. Marked paid in full, Jan 20, 1852 by Wm. Eames.
It is not readily discernable who N. Gray is, but it might be Nathaniel P. Gray (1808-1889), who set off for San Francisco
from the east coast in February of 1850, to open a branch office of a funeral establishment there. He was involved in city
politics and charitable works, and could well have known Thomas Larkin. No other N. Gray's were readily located in early San
Francisco city directories, and a Nathaniel Gray is listed in the 1850, the 1852, and the 1852-53 San Francisco City Directories,
with his occupation as: "Coffin ware-room, and then a "general furnishing undertaker".
