Murfree family papers, 1779-1935; 1960 (bulk 1779-1935) [manuscript].

Early materials are deeds, indentures, bills, receipts, and a few family letters, chiefly relating to the Dickinson family. Routine Murfree and Maney family materials appear by the 1830s. In the 1860s, most materials relate to Eliza and Ed C. Cook, and include several detailed letters about camp life and military campaigns to and from Ed Cook and friends in various camps in Virginia and other locations. There are also Civil War materials relating to members of the Maney, Maslin, and other families, including a small diary of William H. Maslin with copies of poems, orders, and short diaries entries, 1862-1864. Later materials are chiefly general family letters of the Murfree, Maney, Maslin, and other families. There are also items relating to Eliza Cook's finances and to novelist Mary Noailles Murfree (Charles Egbert Craddock). Also included are newspaper clippings, 1864-1917, relating to various family members; genealogical materials; and pictures, including a signed 1869 photograph of Robert E. Lee and an undated photograph of "Mammy Kate," an African-American woman.
