Summary
Correspondence, account books, and other papers of the Essex County, Va. families, chiefly of Robert Mercer Taliaferro Hunter, U.S. Senator and Confederate Secretary of State; with smaller groups of papers of his nephew, Muscoe Russell Hunter Garnett, lawyer and statesman; and of Garnett's grandfather, James Mercer Garnett, agriculturist, legslator, and pioneer educator of women. Business records of Hunter and Garnett merchantile firms during the coloniel and Revolutionary periods, plantation and slave accounts of the Hunter estates, Fonthill and Hunter's Hill, and of the Garnett estate, Elmwood. Letters of Hunter and Garnett descendants, reflecting conditions in the Reconstruction era, and Essex County farm life in the early twentieth century.
Bound volumes include a ledger (3 vols.), 1821-1863 containing school, plantation, and legal accounts; a day book (2 vols.), 1794-1847, containing house expenses (Fredericksburg) and legal accounts; and, a journal (15 vols.), 1830-1854, containing spindle, mill, gin, shop, distillery, farm, slave and grain accounts. The volume for 18778-1879 is a record of Occupacia Mills run by John Ray for Robert Mercer Taliaferro Hunter.
The collection also contains the diary, 1838-1839, of Grace Fenton Hunter Garnett, kept at Elmwood, Essex County, Va., which includes descriptions of a trip to White Sulphur Springs, Charlottesville, Monticello, and the University of Virginia.
