Biographical/Historical Note

Philip M. Box (circa 1811--circa 1890) worked as a postal clerk in Savannah.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains three documents: an income statement from 1849; an 1890 warrant of appraisement and affidavit naming Ann (Anna) Eliza Hardee administrator of Philip M. Box's estate; and an 1891 letter dismissing her of her duties.

This collection was originally part of a larger group of materials accumulated by Henry M. Buckley, found in his house on Tybee Island after his death. It is not known how or why he accumulated the papers; relationships between the papers could not be established, so the collection was divided based on the provenance of their creation. Please refer to the list of related collections.
