Bache Papers-Castle Collection, 1766-1946.

Bache Papers-Castle Collection, 1766-1946.

The collection contains personal papers, correspondence, notes, financial papers, genealogical research, and printed materials of the Bache family, desendants of Benjamin Franklin. The papers of Franklin's grandson, Benjamin Franklin Bache, are at the core of the collection, covering almost the entire span of his life. Personal papers include schoolboy essays and notes, and correspondence with his grandfather, father and mother, and with his future wife Margaret Hartman Markoe. The collection also includes a journal Bache kept while in Geneva and Paris (1 August 1782-14 September 1785), in which he described the people and events he saw, including Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, and John Jay. There are also many papers in this collection relating to the estate of Francis Markoe in St. Croix (V.I.), to which Margaret and her children were heirs. Bache's professional papers include letters from Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Robert Morris and James Monroe. His son Franklin Bache is also well represented, and his personal papers and correspondence are joined with records of his professional accomplishments and honors. There are smaller amounts of material for succeeding generations, including Alexander Dallas Bache (1806-1867), Thomas Hewson Bache (1826-1890), Charles Meigs Bache (1829-1890), Albert Dabadie Bache (1832-1895), and Franklin Bache (1869-1946). The collection also includes approximately 70 imprints and bound volumes.
