A Guide to the Thomas Edward Blackshear Papers, 1830-1889
Thomas Edward Blackshear was a Navasota cotton planter and secretary of the Brunswick and Florida Railroad Company's board of directors.
Photostatic copies of papers concern the financial affairs of Blackshear, plus letters, diaries, and business papers pertaining to the administration of the James J. Blackshear and Thomas Edward Blackshear estates, the operation of the Brunswick and Florida Railroad Company, Indian disturbances in Georgia in 1836, and genealogy of the Blackshear family.
Due to the fragility of these manuscripts the microfilm should be used rather than the original manuscript to make photocopies.
