Biographical Note

The Martin, Dunman, Haynes and Shelley families lived in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Texas throughout the nineteenth and twentierth century. The Haynes family settled in Central Texas in the Blanco and Marble Falls areas.


Scope and Contents

Personal correspondence of various members of the Martin, Dunman, Haynes and Shelley families and their lives and activities in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Texas. Members of these families were related through marriage, and their letters reflect the important domestic events of the day, such as health of family members, crops, prices, cattle, education, social life, Indian depredations, and the weather as well as larger regional and national concerns and events such as the Civil War, the Texas Rangers, and the range cattle industry. The bulk of the collection documents the Elitha F. and James Martin family, particularly as it concerns their children Sarah Annie, James, Susan, and George Martin in the 1870s in central Texas, and the Charles Haynes family. Many of the genealogical documents are photocopies or transcripts of original documents used to contstruct and describe the family's history.
