The collection consists of letters to Elizabeth ("Bettie") Perkins Hairston Hairston from her mother, Ann Hairston Hairston, who wrote chiefly from the family plantations near Martinsville, Va.; her sister, Ruth Stoval (Hairston) Wilson, who wrote from Danville, Va.; her brother, John A. Hairston, who wrote from school in Staunton, Va.; and her cousin, Jeb Stuart, who wrote from West Point and Texas. There are also letters to Bettie, written after 1873, from her husband, J.T.W. Hairston, in Lowndes County, Miss. Other significant family correspondence documents the westward movement of various Hairston family members and includes some papers of Colonel George Hairston who established the family plantations in Virginia. In addition to correspondence, several account books document family life, including the involvement of family members in at least two stores in Virginia from 1800-1829. A household account book, 1831-1869, gives detailed information about weaving, livestock raising, gardening, and other household production. There are also other financial and legal materials, including scattered bills, receipts, depositions, slave lists, and labor contracts between Robert Wilson and various freedmen. These materials chiefly document family business in Virginia.
