Size 1.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 21 items)
Abstract John Hogg (1765-1826) was a merchant of Hillsborough and Wilmington, N.C. The collection consists of account books of mercantile businesses in Hillsborough, Raleigh, Fayetteville, and Wilmington, N.C., in which John Hogg was associated at various times with Andrew Adie, Robert Adam, William Meng, Robert Halliday, and his brother James Hogg. These volumes give only a partial record of Hogg's operations, but from them it appears that Hogg and Company was the chief exporter and importer of the group, with the other firms primarily engaged in local business in general merchandise. There are two letter books: one for Hogg and Company, 1799-1803, and another for Hogg and Meng, 1803-1806.
