Scope and Content Note
This collection consists of ledger compiled by James Knox Roach (1878-1948) for the Victoria Cotton Mill. Mr. J. K. Roach worked as a bookkeeper for the Mill and this financial ledger details the purchasing of cotton (price, amount, etc.) and also supplies a list of dentists, medical doctors, contractors, lawyers, pharmacists, bookkeepers and Officemen in the area (Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Yorkville, Chester, Blacksburg, etc.). Victoria Cotton Mill began as Globe Cotton Mill in 1889 and was renamed Victoria Cotton Mill in 1904. It operated up until at least into the 1950s with William Joseph Roddey, Jr. (1893-1987) as president.
