Custodial history

Records were collected and created by William Henry Peers, agent for Frost and Wood, Agricultural Implements, also known as Frost & Wood Co. Limited Farm Implements, etc., and Daniel George Peers, William's nephew. Records were stored in the Head of Wallace Bay home where he brought up his nephew Daniel George along with his aunt Moriah, where they raised guernsey cattle. Records came into the possession of Marilyn M. Reid when she lived in the house and were donated by her to the Agricola Archives October 26, 2021 (accession number A2021-017)
