A load of old manure

Genealogists are never surprised at where they can find relevant information about an ancestor or for a one name study such as this. This weeks post comes from an entry in the 1901 annual report for the New York City Department of Parks and mentions how Michael Buggy was paid $31.25 on 13 February 1900 for 25 loads of manure.[1] The entry is in the ‘Expenditures of the Department of Parks of the Boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens’ section.
