Abstract
Family papers of Lucie S. Wysong of Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia and Sykesville, Carroll County, Maryland. Includes letters, receipts, tax documents, and legal documents. Most of the letters were sent to Lucie. Letters are clipped to the envelopes in which they were found, though in some cases the dates do not match. Lucie seems to have written notes on the envelopes regarding their content. Additional documents concern her earlier relatives of Jefferson County including Thomas, John, and Sarah Campbell. The surnames Janney and Hammond also appear within the collection. Also includes papers that list the full names of slaves owned by Lucie's family and names of slaves that were "taken by the government", as well as a deposition (1874) listing the names of slaves belonging to her and her mother, Sarah Campbell, who were freed in 1863.
