George W. Enslow was apparently a native of Hart, Michigan, who after service in the Civil War, migrated westward and at some unknown date settled in Nebraska. In 1879 he was a grain dealer in Alexandria, Thayer County, and later he was reputed to be in the general store business in Meridian. He apparently moved to Lincoln, as in 1892 he was credited with being engaged in the general business of farm loans. He died in Chicago, Illinois and was buried in that city.


This collection consists of three folders of material including: 1) Correspondence, 1889-1937; 2) Financial Records, 1888-1895; and 3) Miscellaneous Clippings. The materials relate to family matters, statements of accounts, tax receipts and other financial documents, and clippings. Many of the clippings relate to the burial of General Ulysses S. Grant. An undated note concerning the death of Enslow is also present.

See the photo component [RG4292.PH] for three portraits: George W. Enslow; and 37th Illinois infantry veterans, Louie Carrie and G.H. Elmer.
