Nelson R. Wilson Auction Notice
Scope and Content
This collection consists of a broadside announcing the impending sale of a home and 98 acres of land in the Forest Magisterial District of Bedford County, Virginia. The sale appears to have resulted from a defaulted loan made to Nelson R. and Eliza Helen Wilson by Henry M. Sackett and Douglas A. Robertson, trustees. The broadside mentions that Sackett is deceased and Robertson, the surviving trustee, is selling the property through Walker, Mosby & Calvert, auctioneers. On the reverse side is a typescript agreement for sale of the property, signed both by Robertson and the purchaser, W. H. Slaughter.
- Wilson, Nelson R., b.1856 (Person)
