Abstract:

Materials relating to members of the Green and Jones families. Most correspondence through 1868 relates to the Green family; beginning in 1915, almost all to Jones family members. Items in the collection do not reveal any connection between the Greens and the Joneses. Green family correspondence includes letters from Marcus Green, who wrote to his parents while a student at Wake Forest College, 1847-1848, and later from Rome, Ga. Brian Green also wrote to Martha as he traveled to visit his own Georgia lands and to purchase slaves. There are only a few letters from the Civil War period, among them some in 1863 from Marcus about troops bivouacked near Rome. Beginning in 1915, correspondence relates to the family of Kimbrough and Mary G. Jones, including a few letters, 1918- 1919, from Benjamin Rice Lacy, N.C. treasurer, trying to help the Joneses' sons get out of military service, which they claimed to have been falsely lured into joining. Most other letters relate to Mary's life as a widow, living in the country and growing cotton. Most financial and legal items from 1819 to the early 1860s are deeds, bills, receipts, indentures, and other items relating to Nathaniel and Kimbrough Jones. After 1908, most items relate to Mary G. Jones and her family, and include bills for goods and services purchased and tax receipts. There are also a few anonymous essays and poems, school notebooks, and printed materials relating to agricultural topics.
