Abstract: Noah M. Bronson was an early settler of Medina County, Ohio, who served as a county judge (1823-1830).

The collection consists of a family record book containing the accounts of a store operated by the Bronsons and E.M. Oviatt, including a history of the Bronson family, references to the store's dealings with the Wayne, Medina and Tuscarawas Turnpike Company, details of transactions involving the values of labor, land, food and clothing, and five loose receipts.
