Provenance: Early note pasted in drawer bottom reads: "This bureau was distributed to Carrie S. Ball from the estate of Caroline Ball, January 1887, property of her grandmother, Lois Camp Ball, who was the daughter of Capt. Luke Camp. It is supposed that Lois inherited it from her father, who resided in the house from which this bureau was taken. Its age is unknown, but as near as can be estimated, it is over 100 years old.
