Contents List

Series I: Correspondence (Dated)
Box: 1-13

Most of the pre-1880 letters relate to the Greene family of Antrim, Ireland, and later Augusta County, Virginia, specifically Rev. William Greene (1807-1885) and his wife Frances Whittle (1816-1897). Subjects include legal matters, church issues, including a letter of appreciation from his congregation, as well as letters from their children which include family news, information on their travels, their health, and other routine matters.

The Anson family letters appear around 1876 with a letter from Rev. Frederick Anson (1811-1885) to Rev. William Greene concerning the engagement of Alfred William Anson (1852-1923) to Georgina Frances Greene (1851-1892) and the couple's future financial situation. There is also a circular from Rev. Anson resigning his rectorship of Sudbury in 1877. After 1880, the Anson correspondence consists mainly of letters to and from Alfred W. Anson and his wife from their parents and other relatives, and other acquaintances in England and Ireland. The subject of the letters include family news, the family's farming activities in Augusta County, their health, as well as births, marriages, and deaths in the family and the area.

The Gravely family letters begin to appear in the collection around 1880. Many of them are between William H. Gravely (1864-1934) and his father George Dyer Gravely (d. 1904) and concern Virginia politics and legal matters.

The correspondence of the three families in the late 1800's focuses largely on the disposition of family property in Jamaica, England, and Ireland and the settlements of estates belonging to various family members. Also prominent in the letters are matters relating to the education of the Anson children, and Alfred W. Anson's decision to enter the priesthood. Their is a considerable amount of correspondence between his children and their grandmother Frances Whittle Greene and their aunt Jane Ellen Greene (1840-1931).

In 1894, the Anson family moved to Martinsville, Virginia. Afterwards, the children made numerous visits to their relatives in England, and received much of their schooling there. There is a substantial amount of correspondence from them while crossing the Atlantic, as well as during their stay in England, with detailed descriptions of their encounters and family news.

There is a large amount of information concerning World War I, and the opinions of the European citizenry, news of blackouts, and descriptions of territory taken by the German army as the war progressed. The letters between the World Wars deal mainly with family news, much of it concerning the deaths of various members. Also included is information on the education of William H. Gravely, Jr. (1903-1990) and his subsequent teaching career at Norfolk Academy, graduate work at the University of Virginia, and his resumption of teaching duties at the University of Maryland in College Park.

The correspondence during World War II is mainly from Anson Jamison to his family while he was serving in Europe, North Africa, and Italy. The post-war correspondence, and especially the period after 1970, consists of letters mainly between William H. Gravely, Jr. and his sister Nina Anson Gravely (b. 1905).
