Abstract:

Personal and professional correspondence, legal papers, financial materials, and other papers of Alphonso Calhoun Avery. Correspondence concerns family and business affairs, legal work, land transactions, politics, and various legal and historical publications to which he contributed. Included are letters from Avery's son, Isaac Erwin Avery, about his experiences in Shanghai, China, 1894-1895.

Legal papers consist of deeds, indentures, surveyors' reports, land plats, powers of attorney, and papers relating to Avery's legal career. Financial papers consist of bills, receipts, purchase lists, and account books. Also included are legal and financial papers relating to Western North Carolina Railroad contractors Chambers and Avery and to various family members' estates. Other papers include biographical and genealogical materials relating to the Love, Erwin, Thomas, and other families; Avery's publications and writings on Civil War and western North Carolina history.

Civil War papers relating to Avery and his brother, Colonel Isaac Erwin Avery; recipe and remedy books of Susan Washington Morrison Avery; and volumes containing notes on legal cases, lectures on legal topics, and Civil War clippings and letters. Also included are letters and legal papers relating to land holdings of William Holland Thomas, Sallie Love Thomas Avery's father, who represented the North Carolina Cherokee and acquired vast amounts of land that came under dispute following his financial collapse.

Letters concern the Thomas heirs' legal claims, some handled by Charles Walter Tillett, to the land, mineral rights, and Cherokee land boundaries. Legal papers relate to court cases about the lands and include indentures, plats, petitons, notes, testimony, and Thomas's power of attorney for the North Carolina Cherokee.
