Abstract:

Family correspondence and papers of Dr. Jeptha McKinney, graduate of the University of Louisiana, and a practicing physician of St. Helena Parish.

Early correspondence refers to medical students and medical education; the sale of a sixteen year old female slave (Apr. 21 1856) and severe punishment of "Negro" thieves (Oct. 21, 1849). Other letters concern family matters and health, including yellow fever (Feb. 17, 1854, Jan. 7, 1855, Sept. 11, 1855) and cholera (July 8, 1849, Aug. 22, 1851).

Civil War letters reflect camp life, health of soldiers, treatment by civilians, poor provisions, activities at Ship Island, participation in the fighting at Corinth, Vicksburg, and Port Hudson. Some letters give eyewitness accounts of military engagements at Port Hudson, Shiloh, and Vicksburg. Later correspondence pertains to Reconstruction, family affairs, children, education, and Baptists.

Other items include statements of accounts for medical services; promissory notes; wills; births and deaths of some family members; and a thesis on pneumonia written by Dr. Jeptha McKinney. Manuscript volumes are comprised of diaries; class notes; account book (1857-1860); medical daybooks; memoranda books. Among the printed volumes are minutes of the Mississippi River Baptist Association.
