Abstract:

The majority of papers in this collection relate to Archibald H. Arrington's agricultural and business pursuits in Nash County, N.C., and Montgomery County, Ala. They include many receipts for cotton sales; accounts with merchants; slave and freedmen documents, including records of provisions provided to slaves and freedmen, slave bills of sale and hiring agreements, lists of ages and birthdates of slaves, and sharecropping contracts; overseer contracts; land records, including deeds, plats, and rental agreements; wills and estate inventories of James N. Mann, Peter Arrington, Archibald H. Arrington, and others; promissory notes and records of notes due; partnership agreements and mercantile records; sales of stock; insurance policies and premiums; Confederate tax-in-kind documents and receipts; and miscellaneous receipts for physician's services, educational tuition, tools, transportation, blacksmith work, and other goods and services. There are many letters relating to business matters. Among the correspondents are Samuel L. Arrington, living in Alabama and assisting his brother in the management of the Montgomery plantations; overseers, concerning their contracts and reporting on plantation affairs; members of the Arrington, Williams, Mann, and related families, concerning family property and inheritances; William T. Dortch, giving legal opinions on cases of bankruptcy and property tenant questions; and Bartholomew F. Moore, commenting on legal cases and the postwar political climate of North Carolina. There are personal letters that discuss family news and Arrington's living arrangements while serving in the U.S. and Confederate congresses. Archibald Hunter Arrington, son of John Arrington (1764-1844), was a planter of Nash County, N.C., Democratic member of the 27th and 28th U.S. congresses, 1841-1845, and of the first Confederate Congress, 1861. He also served in the North Carolina Secession Convention and as a local official of Nash County. The Arringtons were one of the wealthier plantation families of antebellum North Carolina. They also owned many plantations and slaves in Alabama.
