JS, Agent, on behalf of Oliver Granger, Bond for Property in Nauvoo,Before 21 April 1840 when the post office was changed from “Commerce” to “Nauvoo,” the Joseph Smith Papers refers to the town as “Commerce.” However, in this instance, the bond itself says the property is on the plat for the “Town of Nauvoo.” Hancock Co., IL, to William Allred$300 was paid at the time of the bond, so no promissory notes would have been associated with this bond.
