1 Title:   Joseph Jones biographical papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Jones, Joseph, 1833-1896

The collection consists of a biographical pamphlet and two letters to Liberty County historian, Rev. James Stacy. Both supplement Rev. Stacy's research for a biographical sketch of Joseph Jones. The first, dated 17 June 1895, from J. S. Winn gives much genealogical information. The second, a letter from R. Q. Mallard of 3 December 1895, recounts interestingly much Presbyterian history as well as material on Dr. Jones.

2 Title:   Charles Colcock Jones, Jr. family papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Jones family  
  Dates:   circa 1749-1930  
The collection consists of papers of the Rev. Charles Colcock Jones family of Liberty County, Georgia from ca. 1749-1909. The early letters (1850-1861) are between Charles Colcock Jones and Mary Jones in Liberty County, Georgia and their son, Charles Jr., while at school in Princeton and Harvard and later in Savannah (Ga.) where he set up his law practice. The letters discuss social and family life, plantation life, politics and government, religious philosophies, and events leading up to the Civil War. From 1861-1865, Charles Jr.'s letters chronicle his involvement as an officer in the Chatham Artillery stationed along the Georgia coast near Savannah, then Charleston and James Island (S.C.), and Jacksonville (Fla.). After the war, the personal correspondence is mainly between Charles Jr., his mother Mary Jones, his wife Eva Eve Jones, and his brother Joseph Jones. There is also a smattering of correspondence regarding his law practice. The collection also contains two volumes of letters Eva Eve Jones wrote to family describing her travels through Europe in 1879, manuscripts of Charles Jr.'s writings on Georgia history, Charles Jr.'s speeches including an 1861 speech to the Chatham Artillery, and addresses (1886-1892) he gave before the Confederate Survivors Association. Also included is a copy of the original manuscript for William Bartram's book Observations on the Creek and Cherokee Indians attributed to Ephraim G. Sqier (1821-1888). The manuscript contains tracings of Bartram's drawing of prehistoric mounds, Creek towns, and Cherokee and Creek structures not found in the published work.
