28 Title:   Miller - Morris collection  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   none  
  Dates:   1847-1961  
  Contents:  
The collection consists of correspondence, notes, writings, genealogical information, printed material, newspaper and magazine clippings, accounts, receipts, cancelled checks, and a wide range of miscellanea and family memorabilia relating to the Miller and Morris families. Of the 19,994 items in the collection, 9,500 are cancelled checks. The collection is in three parts, the first and largest being the Sylvanus Morris division. A great deal of incidental information about old Athens can be gleaned from his papers. The correspondence in this section is principally between Dr. Morris and his wife, Annie Lewis Minor Morris. There are also a few Civil War letters, including a photostat of one written by Robert E. Lee a few months after the war that includes General Lee's views about the question of leaving the country, as many prominent Southerner's did at that time. Several boxes of legal papers and notes relate to Dr. Morris' law practice. The second section of the collection contains genealogical information, primarily pertaining to the Morris, Minor, and Lewis families. Of particular note is the plantation book of Reverend William Douglas of Virginia compiled during the 1780's which gives household and plantation accounts, and lists of slaves. Recipes, remedies, marriages, births, deaths, and illnesses are also recorded in detail. Many of Dr. Morris' lecture notes have survived, along with numerous historical and religious manuscripts, a great many of them in outline form. The third section contains material relating to Dr. Morris' granddaughter, Anne Miller. A point of interest in this division is the large collection of postcards, both American (mostly Virginia and Georgia) and European. Her notes and a copy of her thesis are also among her writings. Most of the correspondence is between Miss Miller and her mother Mary Douglas Morris Miller, and dates from 1947-1961. The remainder of the collection is comprised of Miss Miller's artwork, primarily paintings and sketches. Three of her large paintings are stored separately in the Special Collections Division of the Hargrett Library. One large box of family objects (baby shoes, old battle paraphernalia, fans, cases, etc.) is also available.

32 Title:   Howell Cobb family papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Cobb family  
  Dates:   1793-1932  
  Contents:  
The collection consists of papers of Howell Cobb and the Cobb family from 1793 to 1932. The bulk of the collection is correspondence, mostly addressed to Howell Cobb, dating from 1839 to 1868. There is a large amount of correspondence between Howell Cobb, his wife Mary Ann Lamar, and her brother John B. Lamar. The letters discuss politics in both Georgia and the United States, the Confederate States of America including its formation and administration, and information on Cobb's business interests, especially his plantations. After Cobb's death in 1868, the remainder of the correspondence is between other family members including John A. Cobb, Howell Cobb, Jr., Alexander Erwin, and Mary Erwin discussing family and social news, business interests, and legal cases. While the correspondence primarily documents the Cobb, Lamar, Erwin, and Barrow faimilies, there is also a large amount of correspondence from the Jackson, Hull, Rootes, Lumpkin, King, Pope, Rutherford, Prince, and Nisbet families. The earliest material includes indentures and land grants (1793-1829) relating to Zachariah Lamar's business interests. The clippings do not focus on Howell Cobb, with the very rare exception. These seem to have been donated by family but are very general in nature. The journals and diaries are from family members and friends.
