Abstract:

The bulk of the collection is family oriented, with genealogical material on the Sills, Arrington, Battle, Jelks, Nicholson, and Dameron families. Correspondence from Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi comment on life and activities, as well as emigration of families from North Carolina. Letters, diary entries, and advertisements reflect the daily operation and development of area schools, including the school at Belford, La Grange Female Academy, Warrenton Female Seminary, Franklin Institute, and Castalia Female Institute. Also includes letters from two Sills children who attended medical schools in Philadelphia and Baltimore. A diary reflects the hardships of the Sills family during the Civil War era and includes references to the battles at Roanoke Island and Fort Donelson, Union troops near Wilmington, Confederate invasion of the North and the battle of Gettysburg, Confederate hospitals in North Carolina, and service by Nash County troops. Other material pertains to a distant relative who was involved in the Cuban Civil War. Also contains slave records, including bills of slave for slaves and a list of slaves emancipated in 1865.
