Davis family papers, ca. 1845-1888

One folder of ms. letters, billheads, and legal forms, most related to Ebenezer and Martha Davis of Casco, Me., and their sons, Thomas and William, including Civil War letters. They came in an envelope on which was written "Letters belonging to Mother Davis written in War times./Flora A. Jillson Estate." One of the letters is written from "East Oasis" by E. Davis to his son, and mentions that it is fine lumbering country. Several are written from William to his mother, one possibly from a Civil War camp, and another from Camp Keyes Hospital in Augusta, Me. It is possible that both Ebenezer and his son William both served in the Civil War
