Description

Lewis P. Warren was born in Westbrook, Maine on August 11, 1817, the youngest child of John and Eleanor (Lamb) Warren. Lewis and his brother George entered into partnership with Rufus and Cyrus King, who kept a large general store. Cyrus and Lewis P. took charge of the dry-goods department while George and Rufus managed the grocery department. After five years, in the fall of 1842, Lewis P. withdrew from active work at the company in order to manage his father’s farm business.

Ledgers, 1850s-1890s (bulk 1860s-1880s), documenting Lewis P. Warren's farm accounts. Very little information about Warren's other business ventures - brief mentions of wire, moccasin, and lumber businesses.
