Abstract:

The collection includes extensive business and personal correspondence, 1738-1893, of several generations of the Hawkins family. Also included are papers of other locally prominent related families and correspondence with relatives who lived in Texas, Mississippi, Florida, and other states. Some correspondence relates to slaves owned by family members. Volumes up to 1865 relate primarily to planting and railroads; included are some slave records. The remainder of the volumes are account books, letter books, inventories, order and shipping records, and other records. Among companies important in the papers are Hawkins, Williamson & Company, cotton brokerage and commission merchants of Baltimore, and its successor Hawkins & Company; C.M. Hawkins & Company, which continued Hawkins & Company; the Pioneer Manufacturing Company of Raleigh, N.C., distributor of plows, cotton planters, pulleys, machine castings, bobbins, spools, shuttles, and manure; and the North Carolina Phosphate Company, incorporated in 1885, with its main offices at Raleigh and works at Castle Hayne, N.C. There is almost no material pertaining to Benjamin Hawkins's activities as Revolutionary War leader and United States senator, but there are a few items relating to his career as a United States Indian agent.
