Abstract:

This collection consists of material collected by the Farmington Historic Home in the mid-twentieth century. The collection contains letters written by and between members of the Speed family, including Judge John Speed (1772-1840), Peachy Speed Peay (1813-1891), Eliza Speed (b. 1804), James Speed (1812-1887), Joshua Fry Speed (1814-1882), and Thomas Spencer Speed (1814-1892). Letters between members of the Ward family including Eliza Peay Ward, her husband, John H. Ward, and her father-in-law, William T. Ward are also included in the collection. The papers contain some limited genealogical and biographical information on the Speed and Ward families, and deeds for the sale for land owned by John Speed and inherited by his children. Miscellaneous material includes a pamphlet containing an address given by James Speed to the Society of the Loyal Legion of Cincinnati on Abraham Lincoln dated 1887, a 1905 pamphlet from the memorial for Thomas Speed (1841-1905), a stock certificate for the Louisville and Frankfort Railroad, and a memoir written by Eliza Peay Ward remembering stories told to her by her grandmother, Lucy Gilmer Speed.

Of special interest in this collection is the Civil War-era correspondence of James Speed and John Hardin Ward discussing opinions on slavery and African Americans soldiers.
