Account Journal of Dr. Amaziah Church Sherwood

Collection Category: Account Books | Collection Type: Image Browse | Location: Tompkins County


This is a handwritten journal of Dr. Amaziah Church Sherwood’s patients and their accounts from approximately 1841–1860. He graduated from Geneva Medical School in 1841, and worked as a physician in Cayutaville, Newfield, and Enfield, New York, until his death in 1860. 

The journal includes handwritten records of 150 patient names and fees/expenditures, but does not include treatment information. 

It is possible the entries in this journal are the only place some names can be found—birth, marriage and death records are often unavailable during this period.
