  • Description
     

    This collection contains a handwritten letter (that is partially transcribed) from Ann Elizabeth Bogart of Washington, N.C., and is dated January 8, 1865. It is addressed to “My Dear Aunt” and written to “communicate with my Northern friends.” In the letter she describes the Washington, N.C., area during this wartime period commenting that “. . . we are under no rule now either civil or military . . . .” She discusses the fire that destroyed her family home and garden along with the family’s personal library and other homes in the area. She mentions that it was the second of two recent devastating fires that destroyed much of Washington. The letter mentions her brothers William and David and their military duties along with her introduction to Confederate General Beauregard and Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis in Greensboro, N.C., in September 1864. She concludes her letter with a description of how they have had to make homespun clothing and a discussion about people she knew who were imprisoned or who have died. Also included in the collection are a tintype of a woman who may possibly be Ann Bogart and two color images of the Bogart gravestone and Ann Bogart’s plot where she is buried in Washington, N.C.

  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    This collection was given by Melody Hines Moen and Kathleen Bogart Hinds Kennedy, great-great nieces of Ann Elizabeth Bogart. “Annie E.,” or “Aunt Annie” as she became known, was born September 4, 1830, in Washington, N.C. The eldest of six children born to Gilbert Bogart and Christina Barden Bogart, Annie never married and had no children of her own. She lived with her brother, David Nevius Bogart, his wife, Mary Catherine Morton, and their children, after Gilbert and Christina died. Annie lived in the house that her brother David built, located at 206 East Main Street, Washington, N.C., until her death on November 20, 1906. She is the second cousin twice removed of the actor Humphrey DeForest Bogart. The genealogy of the Bogart family can be found in a privately printed book entitled “The Bogart Family” compiled by John Albert Bogart.
