Abram R. North (ca. 1792–1837) operated a bookstore in Lynchburg for at least a decade prior to his death. He conducted book auctions in a number of southern states, joined a committee soliciting contributions to pay off TJ’s debts in 1826, supported Andrew Jackson politically in 1828, and served as a militia colonel during the 1830s. North died during a visit to Vicksburg, Mississippi, leaving an estate valued at just over $2,000 (Vi: Abram R.
