Abstract:

This collection includes letters, financial and legal papers, and other items of John Steele Henderson and members of the Steele, Henderson, and related families. Earliest items are deeds, indentures, wills, and other legal documents. Items from the 1820s and 1830s chiefly relate to Archibald Henderson's plantation business dealings. In the 1840s-1850s, most letters deal with family activities, especially those of John S. Henderson and his brother, Leonard, at school in Asheville, N.C., and at the University of North Carolina. There are also items relating to slavery, including lists of slaves hired out, slave bills of sale, and two letters from a slave. During the Civil War, there are many letters from John S. Henderson at the University of North Carolina and from Leonard, an officer serving chiefly with the 8th North Carolina Regiment. After the Civil War, many items relate to John S. Henderson's political career, or, after his death, to the activities of Henderson family women in the suffrage movement. Volumes include several diaries, most notably that of Mary Ferrand Henderson, 1854-1861. John Steele Henderson, member of the North Carolina General Assembly, United States congressman, city planner, lawyer, and a founder of rural free delivery of the mail, was born 6 January 1846 in Salisbury, N.C., the son of Archibald II and Mary Ferrand Henderson, a descendant of General John Steele, comptroller of the United States Treasury. In October 1874, Henderson married Elizabeth Brownrigg Cain (1850-1929).
