Two Finding Aids for March

I just posted these finding aids today:

Cuthbertson Farm Journal, 1858 – 1865, 1885 – 1889 – Moses W. Cuthbertson (1795-1865) was born, bred, and died in southern Union County. He and his wife, Margaret McCollum (1798-1880) were childless and together they operated 2,400-acre plantation. Also in their household was a young kinsman, David Baxter Phifer, to whom Cuthbertson acted as guardian and who was a student at Trinity College. The farm journal begins on January 15, 1858, and continues to February 15, 1865 (a month prior to Cuthbertson’s death). Entries report on the annual agricultural cycle, production of various goods, births and marriages, and the movements of local soldiers during the war years. Sometime after the death of Mrs. Cuthbertson in 1880, the farm journal fell into other hands. The blank leaves at the end of the journal were used as a waste book by a Monroe firm (possibly J. Shute and Son) to make temporary records of transactions, dating from the years from 1885 to 1889. 1 volume.

Rose Family Photograph Albums, 1925 – 1950 – Marion Simon Rose (1901-1980) was a Durham businessman married to Susan Emily (1915- ), a figure in the cultural life of Durham. The four albums of candid photographs chronicle their wedding, other special occasions, and the lives of their two daughters. 4 volumes on 1 microfilm reel.
