Scope and Contents

From the Collection: The collection contains a letter from C. L. Clawson of Nation Ford (near Fort Mill), South Carolina, to his cousin Isaiah Clawson in Woodstown, New Jersey, in 1850. The letter is filled with family news and talk of growing cotton in Alabama versus in South Carolina. He also goes into some detail about their ancestors, particularly those of his cousin, and the preponderance of scriptural names in the family. He adds in a post script that he was married on the 11th of January in Montgomery, Alabama, in the presence of "the Governor of Ala., and many grave senators."
