The remaining two boxes contain correspondence, 1821-1930, instrumental in tracing family lines. Principal writers of these letters are candymaker Daniel Fobes (1817-1894) of Boston, Mass., and his wife Lucretia Hayward Fobes (1832-1892); Catherine E. Fobes (1819-1867) of Paris, Maine; Elbridge Fobes (1812-1892) of Portland, Maine; and candy manufacturer Edwin Francis Fobes (1856-1926) as well as various members of the Hayward family in Bridgewater, Mass. There are many letters written by and addressed to Francis Howard Fobes while a student at Oxford and traveling in Europe. This family correspondence also includes an 1823 letter on Swedenborgianism and a small volume of records for the temperance group, the Titticut (Mass.) Band of Hope (1859).
Five octavo notebooks contain the finished genealogy compiled by Francis Howard Fobes in 1937.
