Size 4.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 1,165 items)
Abstract Susan Leticia Rice Clotworthy (1885-1931), of Hillman, Ga., and Atlanta, Ga., compiled genealogical data regarding the Gaines and related families, who were located in many places in the South and West, including Alabama, California, Georgia, and Mississippi. The collection includes chiefly correspondence, 1885-1936, and genealogical data about inter-related southern families, including the Booker, Broaddus, Carnahan, Dalton, Everett, Gaines, Hall, Jennings, Lyne, Madison, Martin, Nicklin, Pendleton, Potter, Rice, Royce, and Taylor families. Eighteenth-century items are chiefly wills and copied letters, and early 19th-century items are very scattered correspondence of members of the Gaines family located in many places in the South and West, including George Strother Gaines (1784-1873), pioneer of Alabama and Mississippi.
