Scope and Content Information

Correspondence, business, tax and legal records, primarily 1848-1890, of various members of the Cook and Luttrell Families of Culpeper and Rappahannock Counties, Virginia.

The Cook family correspondence is concentrated between 1855 and 1858 and discusses the migration of several members of the family to western Virginia and Missouri, courtship and marriage, farming, and detailed accounts of family visits. The Luttrell correspondence, 1874-1890, contains letters to Mollie Luttrell from girl friends, discussing social events and friends.

The Cook family business and tax records, (1936-1859)-1875, are primarily receipts for accounts with Culpeper County merchants, with those of Thomas Jimson Cook including advertisements and attendance records for a grammar school he taught in his home. The Luttrell business records are primarily the receipts of James W. Luttrell (1813-1884) with Culpeper and Rappahannock County merchants, and included receipts for tuition paid to educate his daughter, [Mollie?] and correspondence concerning his investments in Austin, [Texas?]. Also, assorted business and tax records of the Bywaters family, and a legal document appointing James W. Luttrell surveyor of roads for Culpeper County.
