Biographical/Historical Note

The papers in this collection are those of Dr. Lemuel Kollock and his descendants, with the connecting lineage of the Campbell and Johnston families. Dr. Lemuel Kollock (1766-1823) married Maria Campbell, daughter of Macartan Campbell of Augusta, and granddaughter of Edward Fenwick of South Carolina. Their children were Phineas Miller Kollock (1804-1872) who married, first, Jane Priscilla Johnston, and second, Sarah Hull Campbell; George Jones Kollock (1810-1894) who married, first Priscilla Augusta Johnston, and second, Susan Marion Johnston, daughters of James Johnston, Jr. (1769-1822) and Ann Marion Houstoun; and Mary Fenwick Kollock (1806-1885) who married the Rev. Edward Neufville.


Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of Kollock family correspondence, 1801-1889. There are only a few letters of Dr. Lemuel Kollock; the greatest proportion are letters to and from George Jones Kollock, his second wife, their children, his brother and sister, nieces and nephews. The letters are mainly of family news and circumstances; however, they also contain descriptions of social life in Savannah in the early and middle nineteenth century. There are references to the difficulty of travel, to local and national politics, and descriptions of some incidents in Savannah during the time period. There are comments on weather, crops, health conditions in Savannah, and the yellow fever epidemics of 1854 and 1876. The letters of the Civil War period tell of life in military camps and on the home front. A few letters concern the disastrous fire in Savannah of 1889.

Most of the letters have explanatory notes penciled on them by Susan M. Kollock and Edith D. Johnston.
