Fleming-Edmonds family papers, 1762-1938 (bulk 1762-1811).

The Fleming-Edmonds Family Papers include extensive correspondence from eighteenth century Kentucky and Virginia. Most of the letters are either to or from Col. William Fleming, a Virginian who was an early visitor to Kentucky and a member of the state's land court. Many of the letters discuss land acquisition but others describe Indian raids, life on the frontier, and journeys to Kentucky. Some also discuss the Revolutionary War. Three of Judge William B. Fleming's diaries are also part of the collection. Fleming kept them while traveling Europe first in 1868 and then again in 1891. During Woodrow Wilson's administration, Fleming served in the Department of State and the collection contains correspondence between Fleming and Wilson, including three letters from the President. Later material is mostly genealogical in nature including correspondence related to genealogy as well as family trees and printed material. The collection also includes photostats of a small series of letters from members of the Armstrong family, particularly J. N. Armstrong and William McNeil Armstrong.
