Family Ties, Old Letters

Not many people have family history in the words of those who lived it. We’ve got a collection of over 200 letters to and from early settlers in Lafayette County, Mississippi. Not “just the facts,” but some of the gossip, too! It’s easy to get carried away reading from these accounts. We’ve included an index so you don’t miss anything. You can get a taste of what life was like 150 years ago by looking at the samples below.
