Collection Description

Historical Note

The LeConte family included brothers John LeConte (1818-1891) and Joseph LeConte (1823-1901), their father Louis LeConte (1782-1838) and grandfather John Eatton LeConte (1739-1822). John and Joseph were scientists and educators at the University of Georgia, South Carolina College (later University of South Carolina) and the University of California at Berkeley. Louis LeConte was a planter and naturalist who lived at the plantation Woodmanston near Savannah, Georgia and developed a botanical garden there. John Eatton LeConte acquired Woodmanston in the 1760s.

Joseph LeConte was the father of five children: Emma Florence, Sarah Elizabeth, Josephine Eloise (died in early childhood), Caroline Eaton, and Joseph Nisbet.

Emma LeConte's diary of events surrounding the Union attacks on Columbia, South Carolina in February 1865 was published as "When the World Ended" in 1957 and reissued in 1987. Her husband, Farish Furman, became a farmer near Milledgeville and developed a highly successful fertilizer for growing cotton.
