Abstract:

Thomas M. Johnson, cotton planter of Greensboro, Ala., with land in Greene, Hale, and Marengo counties, Ala., and Noxubee, Winston, and Kemper counties, Miss., became administrator of the Marengo County plantation of his son-in-law, Robert H. McFaddin, and guardian of the children of Robert and Mary A. McFaddin. This collection includes financial papers, slave lists, legal documents, business and personal correspondence, and a few miscellaneous items chiefly relating to the Johnston and McFaddin families. Many documents relate to Thomas M. Johnston's property taxes and those levied against the estates of Robert H. and Mary A. McFaddin. Several slave lists and other items relating to plantation life are included. There are receipts for the sale of cotton from McFaddin's estate to business houses in Selma and Mobile, Ala., and copies of current prices for cotton. In 1866 and 1868, there are agricultural contracts between Johnston and freedmen for work on Canebrake Plantation in Hale County, Ala. In 1866-1868, D.C.B. Connerly of the Stonewall Institute in Dallas County, Ala., discusses the education of Johnston's grandsons, and, in May 1869, a letter from Albert Smedes of St. Mary's School in Raleigh, N.C., to a Dr. G. Drake, states that Smedes had learned that Drake was to replace Johnston as guardian of Mary and Carrie McFaddin and enclosed a bill for their schooling. There is a 1839 legal order relating to a debt owned by W.B. and D.W. Green of Lincoln County, N.C., and a few letters to Mrs. V.F. Dalton of Uniontown, Ala., from Marcus A. Wolff of St. Louis, Mo., concerning her financial affairs, hard times in the South, and family news.
