Description

Promise to pay note for sixty-five dollars and thirty-five cents from John Garner and James Jackson to Thomas Townsend and John Vanderbilt, New York City merchants. Note on verso states that payment was received at New York on September 1, 1808. Reference is made to Jackson & Garner, so it seems likely that the two men were business partners. Note: Garner arrived in the United States from Armagh County, Northern Ireland, and settled in Jerusalem (present-day Wantagh), N.Y., sometime round 1801. He was a teacher at the Jerusalem school and also was a business partner in John C. Birdsall’s general store.
