Description Click here to collapse or expand the contents in this section of the finding aid

This collection is made up entirely of biographical and genealogical material pertaining to several North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland families.

Winder family material includes a history of the Winder family in Cumberland County, England and Baltimore, Maryland. This history is complete with a genealogical chart and a defense of the career and character of Civil War General John Henry Winder, commander of Andersonville (Georgia) prison. Closely related to the Winders are notes on the Henry family, which came from Ireland to Maryland.

Also of interest is a rather voluminous "Extract from Family Record" prepared by R. C. Martin. This file consists of genealogical notes on such eastern North Carolina families as the Bryans (William Bryan, Needham Bryan, John Herritage Bryan, etc.), Herritages, Whitfields, Blounts, Smiths, and other related families. Of particular note are biographical sketches on John Herritage Bryan and his son, Henry Ravencroft Bryan.
