White family papers, 1835-1955.

Correspondence; genealogical records, mainly concerning the family of John Blake White; miscellaneous items such as clippings, notes on the duel between William Bay and Thomas Crafts (likely during the 19th century), and a conveyance (1835) of Woodlands Plantation (St. Helena Island, S.C.), sold by Thomas Cooper Vanderhorst to Joseph D. Edings (father-in-law of Thomas Grimke White). Papers of Thomas Grimke White include correspondence (1870-1916), legal records, a scrapbook memorializing his son Thomas G. White, Jr., and writings. White Sr.'s legal records include an argument (undated) regarding Woodlands Plantation, which was taken by the U.S. government in 1866 for a school farm; a petition (1887) concerning Woodlands Plantation; and a complaint (1892) against the U.S. treasury secretary and the first comptroller for dismissing legitimate claims made by dispossessed landowners of Beaufort County whose lands were sold off under the Direct Tax Act of 1862 and who were entitled to compensation according to later legislation. Writings of Thomas Grimke White, Jr., include speeches, essays, and a printed pamphlet entitled "Sea Island Lands: St. Helena Parish and Its Citizens," which concerns the sacking of Beaufort, South Carolina ("The most costly furniture was recklessly destroyed, or sold to the shopkeepers and shipped North, where even now some of it may be seen"), the direct tax, and the confiscation of lands in Beaufort County by the "true and fervent worshippers of the almighty dollar." Papers of Rev. John Chanler White include correspondence (1919-1955), a genealogy (1916) of the White family, and miscellaneous items. Much of the correspondence concerns family history, and includes letters to Rev. White from his cousins Julian and Maude Edings in Macon, Ga., and from Marion W. Seabrook in Sumter, S.C. Also among the White family papers is correspondence (1871-1873) of Ella Louise White, daughter of Thomas Grimke White, a student at the Ladies' Ursuline Community in Columbia, S.C. (also known as the Ursuline Institute), including letters to her from her father at Chappells (in Newberry County, S.C.), and a letter to her from Madame Mary Ursula.
