McFaddin. Other legal documents include those concerning the guardianship of Sarah J. McFaddin and the estate of James Wise. Another group of documents consists of an agricultural contract (1874) and crop liens (1869-1888). These incude two liens of Benjamin L. Broadway to John S. McFaddin (1869-1870), and a lien (1872) to Samuel John McFaddin of Clarendon County by Watson McFaddin and Thomas Wilson (both of whom signed with their "marks"). Among the miscellaneous items is a small leather pocket book (1859-1866) kept by Jay Minto McFaddin and possibly other family members containing notes on financial transactions, and one entry noting the birth of a foal in 1821. Another notebook (1858-1871?) contains lists of groceries, clothes, and other items, and notes on transactions, such as a loan to E.G. DuBose (1865). Other miscellaneous items include photographs, a scrapbook, and a history (1993) of the Union Baptist Church in Laurens, S.C.A collection of notes, clippings, and ephemera (possibly compiled by Virginia Kirkland Galluchat Orvin) concerns people and places in Clarendon County, especially the town of Manning. There is also a copy of an account entitled "Notes" (1874?) by John Witherspoon Ervin concerning corruption and violence in South Carolina during Reconstruction, the activities of the Ku Klux Klan during that period, and hearings and legislation regarding the Klan. Ervin states that "Congressional Committees were sent South to find or suggest horrible stories, out of which to weave a plot to excite the dying war-frenzy of the North."11ocn026243080mix1.00Ervin familyErvin family papersHistoryDiariesRecords and correspondenceCorrespondence among members of the Ervin family, chiefly 1915- 1960; legal account books of Samuel James Ervin and medical account books of William Caldwell Tate (1808-1869), both of Morganton; short stories and poems by John Witherspoon Ervin; and other items.
