Abstract:

Personal, family, and business papers of the Lawton, Baird, Carey, Arndt, and Delany families of De Pere, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and New York, primarily focussed on the lives of Joseph Grellet Lawton, his wife, Ellen Virginia Baird Lawton, and their children and other relatives. Joseph G. Lawton was an early Wisconsin settler, entrepreneur, and developer instrumental in encouraging settlement and industrial growth in the Green Bay area. He and his wife held interests in land, banks, bridges, dams, railroads, and factories, as well as land and mining interests in Pennsylvania. He was active in efforts to develop and utilize the Fox River. The collection contains correspondence concerning family and personal news; business letterbooks and financial records from enterprises in both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania; Joseph Lawton's daily journals and diaries; an account book of William M. Lawton, a Chicago attorney; and a few papers of Ellen J. Lawton Thompson.
