Biographical/genealogical information, 1864 - 1971

 Item — Oversize Box: OF14 [F09.002.07.002]

Scope and Contents

Includes three drafts (4/12/1864, with transcripts) of a letter to Goodwin from David R. Autry, a Confederate soldier stationed at Camp Holmes in Raleigh, in which he attempts to persuade Goodwin to marry him. In one draft (leaf 2, side 1) Autry comments on the Confederate Army's dwindling supplies and questions the motives of the Southern "statesmen" in continuing the war; two poems (n.d., with transcripts), "I will pray for peace again" and "I am glad I am." The poems are presumably by Goodwin; and a four page essay, "Characteristics of My Grandmother," and a 1 page summary of genealogical information by Mabel Day Daniel, Goodwin's granddaughter; and a 6 page description of Goodwin by Lois Day Browning, another granddaughter.
