On the cover of the diary ledger, spanning July 1803 to March 1806, Simeon appears to write a reminder for himself. In the note, he writes that his cattle mark is recorded on page 61 in the Township Book. And, then he adds a small drawing of his cattle mark. Cattle marks were used to identify the cattle he owned, in the same way cattle are ‘branded’ today with a hot iron.
See detailed view of the cattle mark note below. Cattle mark is on the lower right corner of the image, above the date ‘1772’.
