The Beazel family papers hold the accounting records and personal and business correspondence related to the Beazel family, who lived in Westmoreland County and Washington County, Pennsylvania. The records reflect the period from 1809 to 1888. The majority of the collection consists of invoices, receipts, bills, business correspondence, and legal documents relating to Matthew Beazel, a land agent, and Henry Beazel, a steamboat officer. The accounting records suggest Matthew and his family may have also operated a general store. Digital reproductions are available online.
