Directory of Quaker meetings in Indiana and Ohio. The 1835 list referenced in the title was printed in Cincinnati, and a subsequent (1859) printing also bore a Cincinnati imprint; however Byrd & Peckham suggest (without asserting) a Richmond imprint for this edition, presumably on the strength of the first entry, which is for the Indiana Yearly Meeting at Richmond. Per on-line genealogical registries, the inscriber and inscribee appear to have been residents of Bloomingdale, in Parke County, Indiana. BYRD & PECKHAM 1654.
