expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Materials in this collection were collected by Annie Blackwell Thorne (born 1878), probably in cooperation with her sister Tempe Williams Thorne (born 1874). The intertwining of the families represented in these papers is well documented in the genealogical materials found in Series 4.

The activities of members of the Alston, Harriss, Kearny, Thorne, and related families largely took place in and around Warren and Halifax counties, N.C. Three Thorne family members entered into family ventures in Saint Martin Parish, La., in the 1840s. Samuel Thomas Thorne (1827-1921) and his brother John Davis Thorne (1834-1900) owned property on Bayou Teche at Grand Pointe. Their older brother, William H. Thorne, had property further north on Bayou Portage. These ventures were abandoned shortly after the Civil War, and the brothers returned to Warren and Halifax counties.

Samuel Thomas Thorne (1827-1921) married Mollie Thorne. They lived in Littleton, N.C., with their children: Nena Thorne, Tempe Williams Thorne, Annie Blackwell Thorne, Silas O. Thorne, Samuel Thomas Thorne II, and Thomas Whitmell Thorne. Samuel Thomas Thorne (1827-1921) worked for the Panacea Water Company.

Silas O. Thorne attended Trinity College in Durham, N.C. It appears that he started there in 1893 or 1894 and left in 1897 or 1898. After leaving college, he worked for the General Fire Extinguisher Company in Atlanta, Ga. and later New Orleans, La.

Samuel Thomas Thorne II also attended Trinity and graduated in 1908 or 1909. He later worked at the General Fire Extinguisher Company in Charlotte, N.C.

Nena Thorne graduated from Littleton Women's College in 1900 and became a Latin teacher. She married A.S. Busey. Later in life she moved to West Palm Beach, Fla.

In 1906, Thomas Whitmell Thorne entered North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in Raleigh, N.C. He later lived in Atlanta, Ga., and New Orleans, La.

Annie Blackwell Thorne graduated from Littleton Female College in 1894 and studied French. She and her sister Tempe Williams Thorne lived most of their lives in Littleton, N.C.

About 200 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Letters to and from members of the Alston, Harriss, Kearny, and Thorne families. For the most part, there is little connection between the letters. There are a few letters from each person represented and a few from each year, but the exchange of letters is not apparent. The earliest letters include some transcripts and photocopies, the originals of which are not present.

Two letters, 1831, from Thomas Whitmell Harriss (1810-1890) to his sister, Martha Rosanna Williams Harriss, describe his religious conversion while he was a student at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Letters from the 1850s are primarily business letters to W. K. Kearny from N. M. Martin, Bro. & Co., of Petersburg, Va., concerning sales of tobacco and wheat.

Two letters, one from D. C. Clark and one from E. A. Thorne, both of whom were serving in the Confederate Army in Virginia, describe Confederate military life in 1862. Also included are a pass, dated 18 February 1865, by which Samuel Thomas Thorne was authorized by Governor Henry W. Allen to "introduce goods into our lines for the state of Louisiana"; a letter, dated 25 August 1865, in which L. L. Kearny discussed post-Civil War conditions; and a condolence letter from Octavia Williams Polk, niece of William K. Kearny, to "Aunt Maria" on the death of William K. Kearny.

Three letters, 1876, and one, 1878, are from M. A. Kearny to her daughter, Martha Helen Hardee Kearny Harriss. A letter dated 23 January 1882 from T. W. Harriss of Tennessee to his uncle, written in Salina, Utah, describes Harriss's impressions of the Mormons and the landscape in Utah. Also included are two letters, 26 January 1887 and 30 April 1889, to a Harriss family member from Adolphus Williamson Mangum (1834-1890), Methodist minister and professor at the University of North Carolina.

Most of the letters in the 1890s are addressed to Tempe Williams Thorne from cousins and friends in Washington, Littleton, and Oakland, N.C., as well as other places. Two letters are from Silas O. Thorne at Trinity College in Durham, N.C., to his parents.
