Abstract:

Letters relating to members of the Harris and Kennedy families of Mooresboro, Cleveland County, N.C., which were apparently joined by marriage sometime after 1915. Letters dated 1890-1910 are chiefly to Octia Harris, wife of Thomas Harris. Most letters are from her son C.B. Harris (Bin), who worked in road and other heavy construction in Columbia, S.C., Richmond, Va., and Rocky Mount, N.C., and mainly describe his social activities in those places. There are also a few letters to Octia from her son Herbert R. and daughter Esther, both of whom seem to have spent time in Mars Hill and Asheville, N.C., where Herbert worked for a time in a barber shop. Beginning in 1911, letters are chiefly to Maud Kennedy of Mooresboro. These letters are mostly from suitors, particularly Matthew Stroup of Cherryville, N.C., who wrote to Maud from Chapel Hill about his activities as a student at the University of North Carolina, 1911-1914, and, in 1915, as a disappointed suitor, from his law office in Cherryville.
