Size 1 microfilm reel.
Abstract MICROFILM ONLY. The McClellan, Stonebraker, and McCartney families of Lincoln County, Tenn., intermarried but the exact relationship between them is not clear. Jacob Stonebraker married Mahala, daughter of Andrew and Susan McCartney. It is probable that Jacob Stonebraker and his brother, George Stonebraker, who had Arnold relatives in Pennsylvania, came to Tennessee in the 1820s via Kentucky and Indiana, and that Jacob for many years operated saw and grain mills in Lincoln County, with various partners. He died sometime between 1862 and 1866. Papers of the McClellan, Stonebraker, and McCartney families of Lincoln County, Tenn., circa 1822-1866, including personal and family letters, business papers, bills of sale for slaves and other merchandise, and contracts of Jacob Stonebraker in connection with his saw mill, grain mill, and the administration of the estate of his father-in-law, Andrew McCartney; and bills, receipts, accounts, and letters from members of the family who moved from Tennessee to Alabama, Missouri, California, and Texas, and a few letters from George J. Stonebraker, son of Jacob, in various Confederate Army camps and the Union prison at Fort Delaware. Also included are two ledgers, 1833-1842 and 1843-1865, of Jacob Stonebraker and various partners containing accounts for saw mill and grain mill.
