Papers include correspondence; accounts; land, legal, and military papers of Shelby; and a 1760 account of his father, Captain Evan Shelby, with George Ross. Correspondence, 1777-1823, concerns Ky. politics, navigation of the Mississippi River, the defense of counties lying on the Ohio River by militia rangers rather than scouts; applications, 1794-1795, for the provision at federal expense, of guards, spies, and scouts for the protection of frontier inhabitants and such industries as salt licks and iron furnaces, counterfeit money, horse thieves, slave stealers, the return of children captured by the Indians, sale of produce at Philadelphia, landed property in Ky., Tenn., and Md., and land litigation. Other papers include accounts, 1775-1816, containing statements of purchase of merchandise, appraisal of stray cattle taken up by Shelby, record of hemp sold to Thomas Hart, Jr., and a list of "Isaac Shelby's cattle for exposition"; land papers, 1782-1825; legal papers in the case of Isaac Shelby v. John Adair, 1794-1802, and in the case of James Parberry's heirs v.
