Family correspondence, chiefly 1870-1900, of Frances (Kerr) Mebane (1840-1912), of Mebaneville, N.C., wife of Benjamin Franklin Mebane (1823-1884), physician and originator of the Taraxacum tonic. Letters are from her husband and from her five children while away at schools, including the Nash and Kollock School in Hillsborough, N.C., the University of North Carolina, the University of Virginia, and the Bingham School in Orange County, N.C.; and while travelling and raising their own families in North Carolina, Virginia, and New York. Also included are some business papers of a son-in-law, James Edwin Scott (d. 1888), tobacco manufacturer; and 20th-century business letters concerning the tonic originally prepared by Dr. Mebane. Volumes include physicians' daybooks, 1849-1882; student notebooks; and a brief woman's journal, ca. 1881.
