Abstract:

Personal, business, and official papers of William Lenoir, who settled in the Yadkin River valley of North Carolina in 1775, and his descendants and other relatives. Lenoir's papers detail his activities as soldier, militia officer, and local official in old Wilkes County, N.C., and as a landowner, farmer, and surveyor. Included are writings and notes by him concerning the Battle of Kings Mountain and an expedition against the Cherokees and correspondence concerning family matters and public affairs. There are extensive letters and papers of Lenoir's children and their descendants in North Carolina, especially Caldwell, Wilkes, Burke, Haywood, and Orange counties; Tennessee, especially Roane and Loudon counties; Boone County, Mo.; Greene and Hale counties, Ala.; and South Carolina. Lenoir family correspondence reflects daily life and social, economic, and political conditions in North Carolina and beyond in the 19th century, and includes letters from students in schools and colleges, from soldiers in the U.S. and Confederate armies, and from North Carolina political figures, including Lewis Williams (1782-1842) and Israel Pickens (1780-1827). Volumes include account books and small memorandum books concerning farming, livestock, horsebreeding, labor, milling, orchards, blacksmith work, lands and surveys, turnpikes, postal service, trip expenses, provisions and general merchandise, and taxes; diaries of soldiers in the 25th and 26th North Carolina regiments, C.S.A.; and school notebooks, diaries, and district listings for Wilkes County in the 1840 census.
