Papers of the Smith family of Orange County, N.C., especially the children of James S. Smith, M.D. The collection consists of scattered correspondence of Mary Ruffin Smith of Chapel Hill, chiefly in the 1880s, concerning her financial affairs, her loans and gift of land to the University of North Carolina, and social notes exchanged with other residents of Chapel Hill, N.C., including William Mercer Green, Cornelia Phillips Spencer, Kemp P. Battle, and other members of the Battle family. Included also are deeds for military bounty lands in Illinois and lands in Orange, Chatham, and Randolph counties, N.C.; records, 1838-1850, of Mary's brother, Dr. Francis J. Smith (1816-1877), a physician in Hillsborough, N.C., showing patients' medical treatment and charges; business letters, 1850-1854, to lawyers William Stedman and Sidney Smith of Pittsboro and Chapel Hill, N.C., from lawyers elsewhere concerning the collection of debts; and assorted other papers, including tenant farmers' accounts, 1870s-1890s, of Mary R. Smith and of W.C. Cole, who purchased the Smith lands after her death.
