Abstract:

David Weeks, a member of a prominent Louisiana family, inherited considerable land and slaves from his father, Alfred. David married Mary Clara Conrad, also a member of a prominent Louisiana family. David built a magnificent plantation home, Shadows on the Teche, which was finished shortly before his death in 1834. This collection includes papers and volumes of the Weeks family and the related Conrad, Moore, and Gibson families of New Iberia and southern Louisiana. Papers from 1800 to 1819 consist of letters and documents of the Weeks and Conrad families, including William Weeks, David Weeks, and Mary Clara Conrad Weeks. The collection deals with slave sales, sugar plantation economy, antebellum cotton planting, railroad building, state and national political and educational institutions, and war and rehabilitation problems. Children of David and Mary Weeks wrote concerning education, social life, and travel in Louisiana and on the eastern seaboard. Mary Weeks married U.S. Representative John Moore in 1841. Personal correspondence of the Moores depicts plantation life in Louisiana until their deaths in 1860. David's sister, Rachael Weeks O'Connor, wrote long letters to her brother and sister-in-law from Evergreen Plantation, near St. Francesville.
