Letters to Arkansas

Record #:
John Allen and his family left the Hawfields community in 1852, and moved to Arkansas. By the time they arrived, letters from home were waiting for them. The letters between Allen and his family at home in Alamance County give a detailed description of what occurred in Hawfields in the decade leading up to the Civil War. Fountain records some of the events here, including slave ownership, the copper boom, and deadly diseases.
