                   This one item collection consists of an undated letter

                      genealogy of Albert Sidney Johnston.

                      United States Code).
                   Albert Sidney Johnston was born in Washington, Kentucky,
                      February 2, 1803. In 1826, Johnston graduated from the
                      U.S. Military Academy. He served in the Black Hawk War
                      and later migrated to the Republic of Texas where he was
                      a general of the Texas Army and secretary of war.
                      Johnston also served in the Mexican War, after which he
                      reentered the regular army of the U.S. In 1855, he
                      received the command of the elite 2nd Cavalry Regiment
                      with a promotion to rank of colonel. Two years later, he
                      commanded the expedition to quell the Mormon rebellion
                      in Utah Territory and was thereafter promoted to brevet
                      brigadier general. Johnston became commander of the
                      Department of the Pacific in 1860, then reluctantly
                      joined the Confederacy after his adopted state of Texas
                      seceded in 1861. His former classmate, Jefferson Davis,
                      appointed him commander of the western theatre of
                      operations. Johnston was killed at the Battle of Shiloh
                      after commanding a surprise attack on Gen. Ulysses S.
                      Grant's forces in April, 1862. He was buried first at
                      New Orleans, then in the Texas State Cemetery in Austin.

                   This collection consists of a certificate of payment,
                      certificates of purchase, receipts, a land grant, and
                      indentures of Simon Kenton. The certificate of payment,
                      dated Aug. 10, 1787, was signed by Isaac Shelby of the
                      District of Kentucky authorizing Kenton's pay for
                      services as captain in the Shawnee Expedition under Col.
                      Benjamin Logan. The six Register's Office certificates
                      of purchase were for land bought in Kentucky by Kenton
                      in 1804 and 1805. A document signed by Gov. James
                      Garrard of Kentucky May 18, 1800, verifies Simon
                      Kenton's grant of land in Mason County, Oct. 19, 1780.
                      One indenture between Kenton and John Caldwell
                      transferred land in Mercer County, Kentucky, to Caldwell
                      on Dec. 6, 1794. Another indenture, dated Aug. 29, 1818,
                      transferred land in Bath County, Kentucky, from Kenton
                      to Andrew Kinkead. An indenture for land in Mercer
                      County, Kentucky, was made between Simon Kenton and
                      Charlotte and Alexander Walker, Sally and Greenberry
                      McGinnis, and Jenny and John Wright, Apr. 21, 1824. A
                      copy of the Apr. 29, 1802 indenture between John and
                      Elizabeth Kinkead and Simon Kenton for land in Mason
                      County, Kentucky, was made Mar. 29, 1865. Also in this
                      collection are photographs, shot in Maysville, Kentucky,
                      Sept. 1, 1939, of two documents: one receipt of payment
                      by Thomas Marshall, July 1, 1791 for scouting up the
                      Ohio River and the other, a copy of the marriage bond of
                      Kenton and his second wife, Elizabeth Garboe (Jarboe)
                      March 27, 1798.

                   Simon Kenton, a pioneer settler of Kentucky, was born in
                      Fauquier County, Virginia, April 3, 1755. In the spring
                      of 1775, Kenton and Thomas Williams explored the area of
                      Mason County, Kentucky, where they set up camp. Kenton
                      moved on to Boonesborough in the fall of that year and
                      became a famous scout and Indian fighter. Shortly after
                      his first wife's death, Kenton married Elizabeth Jarboe
                      in 1798. That same year, Kenton moved to Ohio where he
                      spent the rest of his life, mostly in poverty. He
                      managed his finances badly, lost large amounts of land,
                      and was even briefly imprisoned for debt while on a
                      visit to Washington, Kentucky, in 1820. Kenton died near
                      Zanesville, Ohio, April 29, 1836.

                      United States Code.)
                   Christopher Columbus Graham was born in 1784, near
                      Danville, Kentucky.  He was involved in several military
                      expeditions including the War of 1812, the Blackhawk
                      War, and the Mexican War.  He graduated from
                      Transylvania University with a degree in medicine after
                      the Mexican War. He served as a surgeon on Colonel
                      Gray's expedition to survey land for the Southern,
                      Atlantic, and Pacific Railroad.  During his life, he was
                      devoted to collecting items to perserve the natural
                      history of Kentucky.  Graham was widely known as a
                      physician, hunter, explorer, surveyor, soldier, and
                      author.  He died in 1884.  John Robert Procter was born
                      in Mason County, Kentucky, on March 16, 1844.  He was
                      educated at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard.
                      He became Kentucky state geologist and Commissioner of
                      Immigration in 1880.  In 1892, Procter was dismissed
                      from his position by Governor John Young Brown.  In
                      1893, President Grover Cleveland appointed Procter to
                      head the U.S. Civil Service Commission.  He served in
                      this capacity until his death in 1903. Fifteen to twenty
                      thousand years ago, a great ice sheet covered an area
                      from northern Canada to the Ohio River.  South of this
                      sheet, wooly mammoths, mastodons, giant ground sloths,
                      and giant bison came to a salt lick in Boone County,
                      Kentucky.  This sight has become known as Big Bone Lick,
                      Kentucky.  Many of the animals became trapped in the
                      boggs and died, their bones buried and perserved.
                      French Captian Charles Lemoye de Longueil collected some
                      of these fossils and sent them to King Louis XV of
                      France.  Benjamin Franklin studied some of the bones and
                      concluded elphants used to live in America.  In 1807,
                      William Clark excavated bones for scientific study.
                      These specimens made their way to museums around the
                      world.

                   These are the papers of Valentine Peers, a businessman and
                      local judge in Kentucky in the early nineteenth century,
                      and his family. The papers largely consist of business
                      correspondence, much of which concerns the Lexington and
                      Maysville turnpike company. Also present are land papers
                      and documents on salt making and salt sales. There are
                      some personal letters to Peers and members of his
                      family, particularly a number of letters from Eliza
                      Powell, Peers' sister.  The group includes Peers' letter
                      copybook, dating from 1813 to 1815 which also listed the
                      estate property of Mrs. Hebe Carter. A cash book and
                      associated receipts, dating from 1819 to 1822, concern
                      transactions of Peers' Maysville factory. There are also
                      some letters from Mrs. Henry Waller, granddaughter of
                      Lewis Collins and great-granddaughter of Valentine
                      Peers, written in 1947 about the donation of Peers
                      materials to the Kentucky Historical Society.

                   Peers was born in Ireland in 1756. He immigrated first to
                      Scotland, then to Loudoun County, Virginia in 1773.  He
                      planned to be a linen merchant but instead entered
                      military service on the American side in the
                      Revolutionary War. He rose to the rank of Brigade Major
                      before leaving the army in November, 1777, to pursue his
                      business interests. Peers married Eleanor Orr in 1791.
                      He and his wife lived in Loudoun and Prince William
                      counties in Virginia until 1803 when they moved to Lower
                      Blue Licks in Nicholas County, Kentucky. Major Peers was
                      involved in the manufacture of salt there for five
                      years. He also opened cotton factories in Paris and
                      Maysville. Peers later moved his family to Paris and
                      became a judge of the Court of Quarter Sessions there,
                      circa 1808 to 1812. His later business interests
                      included insurance subscriptions, land investments, and
                      selling stock in the Lexington and Maysville Turnpike
                      Road Company, which was incorporated in 1817. Peers
                      moved to Maysville in 1819 and remained there until his
                      death. He served as a ruling elder of the Presbyterian
                      Church in Maysville for the last ten years of his life.

                   This collection consists of two letters concerning the
                      story of Jefferson Davis' capture at Irvinville,
                      Georgia, by Union soldiers. The narrative told by Burton
                      N. Harrison was originally published in Century Magazine
                      in 1883. Harrison was the uncle of A. G. Sulser, of
                      Maysville, Kentucky, who in 1931 wrote a letter to Maria
                      Terrell of Lexington concerning Harrison's story. The
                      letter was written on Sulser's insurance company
                      stationery.

                   This group centers around a letter by General Thomas S.
                      Jessup to his brother, Colonel Samuel B. Jessup, dated
                      August 19, 1840. The letter in question concerns a
                      speech by Joseph Rogers Underwood on a Florida
                      appropriation bill.  Thomas Jessup, in Washington, D.C.,
                      was forwarding a copy of the speech to Samuel in
                      Frankfort for publication in Frankfort and Lexington
                      newspapers. A copy of the speech is no longer with this
                      letter. The collection also has a 1913 letter written to
                      Elizabeth Tandy of Paducah, from an aunt (identified
                      only as 'Annie') in Fort Smith, Arkansas. This letter
                      forwarded the 1840 letter to Tandy, who was a descendant
                      of Samuel Jessup. Tandy's aunt provided some identifying
                      family information in relation to the old letter and
                      discussed social news. Some notes about the provenance
                      of these items are also present.

                      United States Code).
                   Jessup, a native of Pennsylvania, emigrated to Kentucky
                      circa 1800 and settled in Mason County. After a brief
                      stint as a store clerk in Maysville, Jessup entered the
                      army as a second lieutenant in 1808. Ten years later, he
                      had risen to the rank of brigadier general and service
                      as Quartermaster General. He continued with that rank
                      and position until his death in 1860. His brother,
                      Samuel Jessup, was a member of the Kentucky state
                      Senate.

                   Simon Kenton, an explorer in the late eighteenth century,
                      was believed to be one of the first permanent settlers
                      in Mason County. He had close ties to both Daniel Boone
                      and George Rogers Clark. He built a station on the
                      Lawrence Creek in Mason County in 1784 to welcome weary
                      travelers and stayed there until 1789 when he and his
                      family moved to Ohio. While there, he became penniless
                      and went to prison for debt in 1820 for one year. Kenton
                      died in 1836 and was buried in Ohio

                      his slave Nancy Glaswell (or Glasswell), February 8,
                      1826, for the sum of $350. Shepard, of Lewis County,
                      restored Glaswell 'to that freedom which is the natural
                      gift and birthright of every human being.' The document
                      was attested by Lewis Collins and A.M. January. Two
                      notes on the reverse recorded the deed in Mason County
                      Court by its clerk, Marshall Key, and recognized
                      Glaswell's freedom. She was described as having 'a light
                      yellow complexion,' being aged about thirty years, and
                      standing five feet high. The clerk's notes identified
                      Shepard as Chauncy B. Shepard.

                   These are papers and records of General Henry Lee, an early
                      settler of Mason County, Kentucky. The collection
                      contains a 1794 letter to Lee by a man named Orr,
                      concerning business matters and politics and an 1832
                      letter to Lee from his son, Richard Henry Lee, then a
                      member of the Kentucky House of Representatives. The
                      younger Lee gave an account of the nomination of Henry
                      Clay for President by the General Assembly, described
                      other actions of the legislature, and mentioned legal
                      actions involving the elder Lee. Other materials include

                   Henry Lee, a native of Virginia, began his career as a
                      surveyor and farmer. After moving to Kentucky, he
                      represented the area in the Virginia legislature, and
                      served as a delegate to the Virginia convention, which
                      ratified the federal constitution. Lee also served as a
                      delegate in the 1787 Kentucky statehood convention. As a
                      general in the Kentucky militia, Lee commanded units in
                      Kentucky north of the Licking River. Lee later served as
                      a judge of the Court of Quarter Sessions and the Mason
                      County Circuit Court. He also became president of the
                      Washington Branch of the Bank of Kentucky.

                   This seven-and-a-half-page deposition was taken at the
                      house of Hugh Power in Adams County, Ohio, on August 17,
                      1811. It concerns a Kentucky land claim for which Simon
                      Kenton was providing evidence. The case was brought to
                      the Mason County, Kentucky, Circuit Court with John
                      Williams as complainant and John Kerchival as defendant.
                      The document's format consists of questions posed by
                      both the complainant and the defendant with Kenton's
                      answers listed afterward. Kenton states that he came to
                      Kentucky in 1775 and soon after 'he became acquainted
                      with the leading roads then traveled by Buffalo and
                      Indians ...' He mostly describes his activities in 1779
                      and 1780, including conducting surveys for the Marshall
                      family. He also mentions Daniel Boone, John Logan,
                      Robert Patterson, and others with whom he traveled
                      throughout Kentucky. This document contains two of his
                      signatures.

                      United States Code).
                   Simon Kenton, a pioneer settler of Kentucky, was born in
                      Fauquier County, Virginia, April 3, 1755. In the spring
                      of 1775, Kenton and Thomas Williams explored the area of
                      Mason County, Kentucky, where they set up camp. Kenton
                      moved on to Boonesborough in the fall of that year and
                      became a famous scout and Indian fighter. Shortly after
                      his first wife's death, Kenton married Elizabeth Jarboe
                      in 1798. That same year, Kenton moved to Ohio where he
                      spent the rest of his life, mostly in poverty. He
                      managed his finances badly, lost large amounts of land,
                      and was even briefly imprisoned for debt while on a
                      visit to Washington, Kentucky, in 1820. Kenton died near
                      Zanesville, Ohio, April 29, 1836.
