a bankrupt furrier


In April 1837 Gansevoort Melville lost his fur business.  Two items from the Albany Evening Journal, Monday April 24, 1837:

FURS, by order of the sheriff.—DAVIS & JONES will sell on Tuesday next, at 12 o'clock N at the Auction Room, the stock in trade of a Furrier.


TO LET.  The buildings on Dean st. between State and Hudson sts.  in the rear of the store of the subscriber, recently occupied as a hat manufactory by G. Melville and is well calculated for that or any other manufacturing purposes.  Possession given immediately. 
LYON, CHESEBRO & Co.
No. 364 South Market st.  (GenealogyBank)
