Abstract:

Collection chiefly consists of legal records, correspondence, historical research, and writings of Edward McCrady, Jr. Legal records pertain to clients and cases handled by McCrady and his law firm (McCrady, Sons & Bacot, and later McCradys & Bacot). A number of cases concern post-war claims against the State Bank of South Carolina (chartered 1801), particularly bonds issued by the Bank in aid of the Blue Ridge Railroad Company. Case records of Samuel Lord (receiver ot the State Bank after the Civil War) include a memorial detailing the history of the records and assets of the Bank during and after the war, describing how cashier Benjamin M. Lee, fleeing Camden (S.C.) in February 1865, was captured by Gen. Sherman's soldiers, who "plundered and carried off" bonds and other securities in his possession. A letter (Feb. 1896) from Edward McCrady, Jr. to Captain George W. Cone at Camp Oak (South Dakota), asks if he recalls whether any bank bonds were "captured by your party," if any were destroyed, and if he knows what became of the bonds, offering to "negotiate for their recovery."

Other case and client records pertain to F.H. Dickinson of Barnwell County; Hyatt, McBurney & Co., and John R. Stanford of Pomona Hall, Clarkesville (Ga.); George Garvin; Fenimore C. Marsh of Ohio; Robert D. Mure; Charles Kerrison; Robert Quash Pinckney; Elizabeth Louisa Cuthbert Porteous; Elizabeth McKelvey Couturier; Charles Seele; James Simons, Sr.; William Henry Trescot; and the Valley River Mining Company (N.C.). One case concerns claims for compensation for rent of wharves, warehouses and offices in Charleston (S.C.) which were confiscated for the use of the U.S. Army Quartermaster Dept. during and after the Civil War. Several case relate to the Davie family and the estate of William R. Davie (1756-1820) and his plantation Landsford in Chester County. Of note is a group of financial, legal, and property records pertaining to several freedmen and their properties on Johns Island (S.C.), principally divisions of the Capes Plantation. This group includes bank books of the Freedman's Savings and Trust Co., conveyances, and some related correspondence and notes. Persons named include Cyrus Rivers, Cyrus Simons, Abram Jones, Robert Gadsden, Lewis Miller, July Cokescum, Taffie Singleton, and Phoebe Ann Drayton. Also of note is a judge's order (1878) giving notice of amnesty to anyone who "at any time acted with the outlaw Lewis R. Redmond" in Pickens County (S.C.).

McCrady's personal correspondence includes a letter (17 April 1900) from Charles U. Shepard concerning the "Pinehurst tea experimentation." Writings of Edward McCrady, Jr. consist of notes, letters to the editor, speeches, essays, and part of a manuscript of a book about the U.S. Constitution and the Supreme Court. Other topics of writings include dueling, lynching, slavery, and divorce. Historical research material pertains to the records of the Confederate States Army, and includes printed special orders issued by the C.S. Adjutant and Inspector General in 1861 and 1862.
