Summary
Personal and business correspondence, business and legal papers, and memorabilia trace the family through five generations.
Broad topics are life in Virginia, the role of women in society, slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction, and religion.
Of special interest are letters of Randolph B. Grinnan, missionary to Japan; Andrew G. Grinnan, physician and speculator; John R. Bryan, farmer; St. George Tucker, Williamsburg jurist; and John Randolph of Roanoke.
Business papers of Murray, Grinnan and Mundell, Fredericksburg flour merchants concern the flour trade and the effects of the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812.
Legal papers concern estate settlement and contain wills, deeds, indentures, powers of attorney, land surveys and a Civil War pardon.
There are also blacksmith daybooks, store accounts, drug purchase records, and surveys and sketches of coal lands.
Of interest is an 1825 journal of a trip to Scotland, England, and France, an essay on whaling in Yosa, Japan, genealogical material on the Carr, Holladay, Lewis, Nicholas and Randolph families, a letter sent through Union lines in care of the slave "Carter" and a tintype of former Albemarle County slave "elder" Sam Pryor.
Briefly mentioned topics of interest include the Revolution; travel to New York state, California, India, and New Orleans; an 1812 earthquake; an 1830s cholera epidemic, the election of 1840; Andrew Jackson, Jenny Lind, temperance, and the Miller School.
