Abstract:

The papers contain correspondence of several family members particularly Asa James, Charles Fenton James, Emma James, and William H. James. Subjects include the Conservative Union Party in Missouri and the election of 1860; the Democratic Party and the election of 1864; life in the Confederate Army in February 1865; and the Northeast Missouri Agricultural and Horticultural Society, 1869.

Topics also include William H. James's scientific expedition to New Guinea, 1875-1876, his murder by natives, and the disposition of his effects; the 1912 reminiscences of Col. Edmund Berkeley, on the gallantry of the James brothers during the Civil War particularly at Petersburg, and family genealogy.

Financial and legal material centers on Elias James, and includes a statement of his good character and freedom from debt, notes for payment, and a copy of an inventory of his Loudoun County, Va., estate, as well as a Confederate bond, 1862, and a Nevada mining company stock certificate, 1919.

Miscellaneous material includes a militia commission, 1845, a Confederate oath of allegiance, 1862, an account of a conversion and call to the ministry, 1872, an 1880 history of Buchanan Baptist Church, Botetourt County, Va., Civil War reminiscences, and an attempt to ascertain the reaction of Virginia Baptists to the ratification of the Constitution and other notes on religion in Virginia.

Also include a record book for the settlement of the estate of Robert James including a list of "losses by vandals 1864" and a journal of collections made by William H. James on Jule Island, New Guinea.
