Background
The papers seem to deal with a Joseph Campbell who purchased real estate in San Francisco during the 1890s. Joseph, according to documents in a related Biographical File, was a teamster and a drayman in San Francscio, documented by a certificate dated, Jan. 26, 1878, from the Draymen's and Teamsters' Union of San Francisco, California, noting Campbell a member in good standing. This same file also includes his Municipal License, dated January 1st, 1891, licensing him to operate a vehicle drawn by more than two animals, his business address being "Pine and Front". John Campbell paid real estate and personal property taxes on his behalf from 1893-1903.
