State(s): New York
Years: 1834

Stock issued to Nathan Meyer Rothschild and signed by his attorney. Nathan Mayer, Freiherr von Rothschild (16 September 1777 – 28 July 1836), known as Nathan Mayer Rothschild, was a London financier and one of the founders of the international Rothschild family banking dynasty. He was born in Frankfurt am Main, the fourth child of Mayer Amschel Rothschild and Gutle Schnapper. In 1798, at the age of 21, he settled in Manchester and established a business in textile trading and finance, later moving to London, England and making a fortune in trading bills of exchange through a banking enterprise begun in 1805. In 1816, his two elder brothers were granted noble status (Freiherr or Baron) by the Emperor of Austria. They were now permitted to prefix the Rothschild name with von or de. Their device of four arrows became five when in 1818 Nathan too was elevated, although he chose not to use his aristocratic title Freiherr von Rothschild.

The Chenango Canal was a towpath canal that existed in the middle 19th century in upstate New York. It was 97 miles long and followed the Chenango River for much of its course, from Binghamton on the south end to Utica on the north end. It provided a significant link in the water transportation system of the northeastern U.S., connecting the Susquehanna River to the Erie Canal. More history on the canal included with stock.
