The collection consists of a bill of sale for a slave and a clipping concerning the Davis family genealogy. The bill of sale (1863) transfers a Negro woman named Rachel from James G. Davis to Ida Davis. The genealogy clipping apparently taken from a Duplin County, N.C. newspaper (1938) traces the descendants of Wendel Davis, Sr., eighteenth century planter of Lenoir and Duplin Counties.
