Of interest is an entry, 1854, for $3.50 "to James Alexander of Charlottesville, for advertising Bloomingdale." Also of interest is a payment of $5.00, 1860 Apr. 5, to "Mrs. Lucy Rawlings for hire of a servant for a short time after my maid servant died."
- There are numerous entries during the Civil War years. Barbour records in January 1862 that "fearing the enemy might come to Richmond and perhaps take it (my money in B[ank]), I sent Mr. Smith Cashier of F.[armer's] Bank." In late April or early May 1865, Barbour also cancels a debt of $166 "the above being in Confederate money, she owes me now nothing."
