Greetings Fellow Historians!

This site was created to stash old letters that were spared from obscurity so that descendants of those who wrote the letters may benefit in their historical or genealogical research. I do not wish to profit from these letters and it’s my intention to eventually donate any originals that I own to an appropriate county historical society/museum. A significant number of these letters were never owned by me; they were transcribed with the permission of the owner prior to their being auctioned on ebay and posted on this site after the sale.

If you find these letters useful in any way, I’d love to hear from you.
