Document meas. approx. 10.50 x 6.50 inches and is in nice shape with lower left corner being slightly chipped. Same corner has a diagonal fold line

Mr. Samson shows up on the 1850 census as having been born in Germany in 1819. He is not listed in the 1860 census so he may have moved away or died.

Interesting document for the Gettysburg collector.  [ad]
