Standish was a farmer who lived near Livonia in Washington County, Indiana his entire life. Benjamin and Malinda had no children. He passed away in 1906.

Scope and Content Note:

This collection consists of a notebook, a letter to Benjamin and Malinda, a juror's summons, and a receipt for a registered letter. The notebook is of the most interest because it starts out as what appears to be Benjamin's arithmetic notebook, but is later used for some budgetary accounts, poetry, and doodling.
