    While the major portion of the correspondence is genealogical, letters from New Orleans commission merchants to W. M. Dixon in Calhoun, Arkansas (1859-1861), discuss the decline in the quality of cotton (1859), the sale of Dixon's cotton and its quality (1860), and the amount of money transferred to his credit (1861).

    The remainder of the collection relates to the genealogies of the Goodwin and allied families. Included are genealogical histories of the Mayfield, Dixon, Hutcheson, McMath, Baker, Moody, and Brown families of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Arkansas, and the Wells and related families including the Parker, Dickson, Bailie, Hunter, Bigelow, and Wheelwright families of Maine, Wisconsin, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Massachusetts.

    Of interest are photographs of various family members and scenes of houses and the waterfront in Belhaven, N.C.
