Abstract:

The collection chiefly comprises correspondence of the Howe family, residents of Marengo County, Ala.; Okolona, Miss.; and Memphis, Tenn. Prominent family members include Chiliab Smith Howe (1809-1875), soldier, planter, and merchant; his wife, Julia Pickens Howe (1815-1898); their daughters Ellen (1839-1921), Laura (1841-1927) and Joanna (fl. 1851-1899). The earliest letters are from Israel Pickens (1780-1827), U.S. congressman and Alabama governor, to his brother-in-law about congressional activities, his move to Alabama, and family events; letters from Lenoir family relations at Fort Defiance and elsewhere in North Carolina, and love letters from her husband-to-be. There are military papers compiled when Chiliab was serving with the U.S. Army forces removing Cherokee Indians from North Carolina and Tennessee. The rest of the collection consists chiefly of letters among members of the Howe family. Ellen and Laura wrote while they were attending school in Aberdeen, Miss., and at the Columbia Female Institute in Columbia, Tenn. During the Civil War, both Ellen and Laura followed their husbands to various camps in Virginia and Georgia and described their experiences. Their husbands, who served in the 11th and 41st Mississippi regiments, both died during the War. After the War, they taught school to support themselves at the Lamar Female Seminary in Paris, Texas. Also included are materials relating to the military careers of John Richardson and J. Byrd Williams, and an 1863 diary of Ellen Howe Richardson.
