Series 1: Gourdin-Young papers, 1827-1915

This series contains a collection of family and business papers of Henry Gourdin (1804-1879), Robert Newman Gourdin (1812-1894), Peter Gourdin (1814- ), Louis Isaac Gourdin (1809-1832), William Doughty Gourdin (1801- ), and Rebecca Ann (called Anna) Gourdin Young (1805- ), children of Samuel and Mary (Doughty) Gourdin of Charleston, S.C.; also their nephew, Dr. Samuel Gourdin, and various relatives and friends. Many persons of prominence in Charleston and South Carolina are represented in the papers.
Anna R. Gourdin married the Rev. Thomas John Young (d.1852), son of William Price and Dinah Young of Colleton District, S.C. Among their children were Henry Edward Young, a lawyer of Charleston; Louis Gourdin Young, who was associated with his uncles in business; William Gourdin Young and Charlotte Dinah (Young) Lawrence. All of the persons named above are included in the correspondence.
Henry Gourdin was the senior partner of Gourdin, Matthiessen & Co., a firm of factors in Charleston. Robert N. Gourdin, a lawyer, was also a partner. Frederick C. Matthiessen was the other partner. After the death of Mr. Matthiessen, the firm was Gourdins, Young and Frost (Henry W. Frost). Louis Gourdin Young (d. circa 1922) was an associate, first in Charleston, then in Savannah, where the first was known as Gourdin & Young. After the death of Robert N. Gourdin, Young was an independent cotton exporter and Marine Agent in Savannah. In 1867 he married Mary S. Waller (d. circa 1915) of Lynchburg, Va. For many years she was principal of the Oglethorpe Seminary in Savannah.
The papers are arranged as follows: Gourdin-Young family correspondence; memorabilia and genealogies; and personal and business records. The Matthiessen correspondence is in this last group. Some of the letters are typed copies. These are Keith Read's retained copies of the papers he sold to the Library of Emory University. The originals of them are in that library.
