  Creator:   Newton, Virginia  
  Dates:   1939-1967  
The collection consists of typescripts, manuscript notes, proof sheets, and correspondence concerning "Sketches of the early history of Madison County" and "Autobiography of Rev. Groves H. Cartledge." Reverend Groves Harrison Cartledge made great efforts towards cataloging the history of Madison County, Ga., and the struggles of the pioneer 18th century minister Reverend John Newton of Hopewell Presbytery. Historical sketches mention many early Georgia families, Presbyterian churches in Northeastern Georgia, and include comments on such varied subjects as depredations by th Indians, soil conservation, difficulties of pioneer life, etc. Jessie Mize, Virginia and Charlotte Newton, and the Rev. Samuel Cartledge compiled this collection. The correspondence sheds further light on the publishing history and the background research performed by this dedicated group. Also included is a sizable amount of genealogical material on the Cartledge family and allied families of the Madison County area.
