Abstract:

The collection consists of several family histories conerning the Croom, Fordham, Lapierre, Rouse, Sparrow, and Stroud families; Bible records of Isaac E. Sparrow (1822-1885) of Lenoir County, N.C.; and papers concerning the Rev. Patrick Jones Sparrow, D.D. Material concerning Rev. Sparrow includes xerox copies of clippings, census records, letters, book and magazine excerpts; his 1836 travel diary; and speeches given by him while associated with Davidson College. The collection also contains "History of the First Presbyterian Church of Pensacola, Florida 1837-1940," where Rev. Sparrow was pastor from 1856 until 1862. Rev. Sparrow's travel diary documents his travels from north central North Carolina (Rockingham and Caswell counties) through Virginia to Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Md.; Philadelphia, Pa.; New York City; and finally to Pittsburgh, Pa., where he attended a Presbyterian General Assembly meeting. Included are descriptions of steamboat travel on the Potomac and Delaware rivers, stage travel, and train travel. Sparrow also describes U.S. House of Representatives and Senate meetings he attended and depicts the physical appearances and speaking styles of Congressmen John Quincy Adams and Henry Alexander Wise, Vice President Martin Van Buren, and Senators Judge Hugh Lawson White, Felix Grundy, Daniel Webster, John Caldwell Calhoun, Henry Clay, and William Campbell Preston. Two additional Sparrow family-related papers are an article excerpt concerning Lemuel M. Sparrow and a clipping concerning Rev. Patick J. Sparrow's son, John. Items not pertaining to the Sparrow family include a letter from author Thad Stem, Jr., and a letter from poet Walter Blackstock.
