expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

The bulk of these papers concern members of the Hubard family who, at one time or another, resided at Saratoga, a plantation in Buckingham County, Va. Letters to the Hubards were often addressed to them at Saratoga and nearby locations, such as Buckingham Court House, Curdsville, May Brook, Mill Brook (also Millbrook), and Ca Ira (also Caira), which was a milling and shipping point on the Willis River, a tributary of the James River. Hubard family members included Edmund Wilcox Hubard (1806-1878), Robert Thruston Hubard (1808-1871), and Louisiana Hubard (d. 1832?). Related Eppes family members resided in Halifax County, N.C. They owned at least two homesteads or plantations, referred to (with variations in spelling) as the Grove Farm and the Wyche Farm. The genealogical charts below give further information on Hubard family members and their relatives.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

This large collection of personal and business papers centers about several generations of the white Hubard family, their extended families, and the people they enslaved at various plantations and smaller farms in Virginia, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida, during the eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries. Individuals of note include Edmund Wilcox Hubard (1806-1878) of Saratoga Plantation, Buckingham County, Va., planter, state legislator, militia officer, and member of Congress, 1841-1847, and his daughter Susan W. Hubard, a journalist and writer. Localities important in these papers are Albemarle, Amherst, Gloucester, Middlesex, Nelson, and other counties in Virginia, as well as Richmond and Washington, D.C.; Halifax County and other places in North Carolina; and various places in Tennessee and Florida.

Topics include the cultivation of tobacco, cotton and wheat, expenses and difficulties associated with the institution of slavery, as well as other aspects of plantation life. There is extensive documentation of enslaved people and freedmen, including lists of enslaved people, correspondence regarding the sale of enslaved people or their place within an estate settlement, and labor contracts with freedmen. There is also documentation relating to the political, legal, and medical professions. There are many references to social life in Virginia and North Carolina.

The few military papers relate the Revolutionary War, to the Civil War, and to offices and affairs of the Virginia militia.

Throughout the collection, there are references to politics, local, state, and national, many of the persons involved in the papers having either taken part in campaigns, conventions, elections or actually held office. There are also many papers dealing with money transactions: bills and receipts, personal notes, deeds and mortgages, land sales, wills, and settlements of estates and related lawsuits.

In addition to Hubard family papers, there are also scattered papers of a number of related families, including Bolling, Hubard, Jefferson, Jones, Littlejohn, Eppes, Moseley, Page, Randolph, Thruston, Thweatt, Wilcox, and Williamson. Plantations mentioned include Saratoga, Quitzni, Buffaloe, Rosny (Rosney), Chellow (Chellowe), Grove Farm, Wyche Farm, and Mill Brook (Millbrook).

Undated materials have been grouped, as far as possible, by family member to which they relate.

1741-1770.

The earliest of the papers deal with land transactions in Goochland and Albemarle Counties, Va., and the names appearing therein also appear occasionally in later family papers.

The first important family is that of John Wilcox, mariner, of Urbanna, Middlesex County, Va., who was captured by the French in 1756 and imprisoned at Bayonne Castle. Richard Eppes also appears in the early papers, as do William Hubard and John Thruston, both of Gloucester County, William East, Sr., of Charlotte County, and Robert Bolling, all of whom were progenitors or closely connected to members of the Hubard family.

In this period there appear, in larger numbers, the papers of William Hubard (d. 1805), first at Gloucester County, where some members of his family remained, then at Charlotte County, Va. These papers include a number concerning business transactions with John Thruston, also at Gloucester County, whose daughter, Frances Thruston Hubard (1752-1781) married William Hubard in 1768. William Hubard served in the state militia, attaining the position of major (circa 1778).

Papers for this period also include, beginning 1778, accounts and other papers of Susannah Watson, who first married Robert Bolling, at Chellow (also spelled "Chellowe"), Buckingham County, Va., and, second, Edmund Wilcox.

1785-1807.

The last signature of Edmund Wilcox, found in these papers, was on a paper dated May 1785; shortly thereafter are papers dealing with his estate with Susannah Watson Bolling Wilcox as executrix. More Hubard papers are found in this period, particularly those of James Thruston Hubard, son of William Hubard, who married Susannah Wilcox, daughter of Edmund Wilcox and Susannah Watson Bolling Wilcox, circa 1805. (For more Edmund Wilcox papers, see undated subseries 1.14.1.)

James Thruston Hubard carried on correspondence about his plans for studying medicine and his life at the Pennsylvania Medical School at Philadelphia in 1796 and 1797, under doctors Benjamin Rush, James Woodhouse, Benjamin Barton Smith, and others. There are a number of papers dealing with his practice of medicine at Petersburg, Va., 1799-1806. After he had purchased a house in Richmond, James Thruston Hubard apparently returned to Buckingham County to practice medicine, living at Saratoga Plantation.

1808-1817.

Dr. James Thruston Hubard figures prominently in the papers of this period, there being bills, duns, personal letters, material concerning his farm affairs and practice of medicine, and a number of items dealing with the law suit against his mother-in-law Susannah Watson Bolling Wilcox about his wife's inheritance, which suit, apparently, was finally decided against him. There are several letters to him from his sister Margaret Hubard, who also wrote to his wife Susannah Wilcox Hubard. James Thruston Hubard died in 1812, and there are papers relating to the settlement of his estate and his family. Susannah Watson Bolling Wilcox also died about 1812.

After the death of Dr. Hubard, the papers show that his family, owing to his debts and the failure of his wife to inherit, were in dire straights and in danger of being put out of their home. There was much correspondence between Susannah Wilcox Hubard and her half brother, Lenaeus Bolling, showing his efforts to help her. As things turned out, she apparently was able to continue living at Saratoga and to send her children to school.

Papers relating to the Eppes family include those about the settlement of the estate of Francis Eppes of Eppington, whose son, John Wayles Eppes (1773-1823), U.S. representative and senator, married first, Maria Jefferson, daughter of Thomas Jefferson, and, second, Martha Burke Jones, daughter of Willie Jones, of Halifax County, N.C. John Wayles Eppes and his family lived at Mill Brook, Buckingham County, Va. There are also letters written by the wife and daughters of Francis Eppes, Louisa Eppes Thweatt, Sally Eppes Lane, Lucy Eppes Thweatt, Matilda Eppes Field Spooner, and of Jerman Baker, who married another daughter, Martha Bolling Eppes Baker. Richard Thweatt eventually purchased Eppington.

There are papers referring to Caira Mills, a grist mill. Caira (or Ca Ira) apparently was a shipping point used by the Hubard family.

1815: There are letters, dated 21 March 1815, to Susannah Wilcox Hubard, one from her niece Mary and another from Pocahontas Bolling Cabell at Mt. Athos, mentioning her brother's being called to the army, a Methodist conference, her father, and home in Kentucky. There is another letter, dated 9 October 1815, in which Pocahontas described her journey home from Saratoga, rats attacking her in a tavern, stage horses attempting a runaway, and family news. In a letter, dated 23 December 1815, Pocahontas at Lynchburg, Va., described that place and some of the women there. She also mentioned a visit by General Andrew Jackson, accompanied by Thomas Jefferson.

1816: There is a letter, dated 28 July 1816, from Francis Eppes at New London, Va., apparently at school, to his stepmother, Martha Burke Jones Eppes, at Mill Brook, Va., about personal and family matters.

1818-1827.

Around 1818, Susan Wilcox Hubard married John W. Maury, and, by means of an indenture dated 29 October, placed property in the hands of Lenaeus Bolling and William M. Thornton, to be handled for the benefit of her three children, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Robert Thruston Hubard, and Louisiana Hubard. There are a number of letters and other papers concerning this transaction and management of the trust, including those from Charles C. Patteson, "agent for the trustees for James Thruston Hubard's children." The property in question apparently consisted of the Saratoga and Buffaloe plantations, land in Nelson County, Va., and a number of enslaved people and property. From 1824 to 1826, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, away at college, and his brother, Robert Thruston Hubard, at home at Saratoga, had correspondence about the debts of their step-father, John W. Maury, apparently then living in Nelson County, his wife being back at home at Saratoga. Also, dated 1826, there are letters and papers about the question of the rights of Maury and his family to property involved in the marriage settlement. There are also papers of Charles C. Patteson showing dealings with John W. Maury about the latter's debts, and about land.

There are also many letters between members of the Eppes family, the sisters and their husbands, and Martha Burke Jones Eppes, wife of John Wayles Eppes (d. 1823). These letters refer to personal and family affairs, settlement of the estates of their parents, and related matters. Archibald Thweatt purchased Eppington, the home of Francis Eppes in Chesterfield County, Va. In one letter, he also referred to holding Bermuda Hundred, Va.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard began attendance at Hampden-Sydney College in 1824; in 1825, he entered the University of Virginia. There are a number of letters, chiefly to his brother Robert Thruston Hubard, describing both places in detail. There are also letters to the brothers from their sister Louisiana Hubard, but very few from their mother, Susannah Wilcox Hubard Maury, although she is often referred to in her children's letters.

Philip Bolling, son of Lenaeus Bolling, attended Hampden-Sydney College and the University of Virginia with Edmund Wilcox Hubard, and he figured prominently in the correspondence connected with those colleges.

There is some correspondence from the Grove, Halifax County, N.C., with Martha Burke Jones Eppes, about the enslaved people there, mentioning the other enslavers, and some letters, 1826, about the death of her mother, Mary Montford Jones. There is also a good deal of correspondence between Archibald Thweatt and Jerman Baker, husbands of two of the Eppes sisters, about property belonging to the sisters. The affairs were apparently settled out of court, but there is correspondence about the involvement of Martha Burke Jones Eppes in a settlement.

In this period, there are letters, chiefly to Martha Burke Jones Eppes from John C. Page, evidently a close family friend, about the management of her affairs, including a discussion of financial arrangements between them, and his doubts about being able to continue in such service. There was evidently close contact between the two families, and, in 1824, Page wrote Susannah Wilcox Hubard Maury, asking for payment of her share in a teacher apparently employed jointly for the Hubard and Eppes (and perhaps other) children.

In 1827, Robert Thruston Hubard went off to attend Hampden-Sydney College, referring to the "new college," and wrote letters home to his mother, and to his brother, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, apparently at that time a captain in the state militia. Willie J. Eppes, son of John Wayles Eppes and Martha Burke Jones Eppes, attended college with Robert Thruston Hubard and is often mentioned in the latter's letters.

Among other papers in this period are:

1825: There is a letter, dated 4 August 1825, from Louisiana Hubard at Saratoga, to her brother, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, at the University of Virginia, in which she mentioned neighborhood news, including plans for a large Methodist camp meeting, and the fact that M. Eppes would be there. There is a letter, dated 11 August 1825, that Joseph B. Littlejohn, husband of Ann Maria Jones Littlejohn, at Rocky Mount, N.C., wrote to his sister-in-law, Martha Burke Jones Eppes at Mill Brook, about the death of her mother. In a letter, dated 19 August 1825, Robert Thruston Hubard described Salt and Sweet Springs, Va.

1826: There is a letter, dated 14 May 1826, from H. G. Montfort, at the Grove, Halifax County, N.C., to Martha Burke Jones Eppes, with an enclosed valuation of enslaved people in North Carolina, divided in lots among the following persons: Willie W. Jones, Hutchins G. Burton, Joseph B. Littlejohn, Robert A. Jones, and Martha Burke Jones Eppes. Letters from Edmund Wilcox Hubard, at the University of Virginia, describe life there; he mentioned building construction at the University, a circus attended by Thomas Jefferson "with enjoyment," and Hubard's proposed visit to a cave about 30 miles away.

1827: There are letters from Robert Thruston Hubard, at Hampden-Sydney College, then rooming with Willie J. Eppes, in which he gave details of the life there. He mentioned his brother Edmund Wilcox Hubard being a captain in the militia. In a letter dated 10 December 1827, M. B. Robertson, a cousin of Susannah Wilcox Hubard Maury, at Richmond, wrote about schools there for Louisiana Hubard.

1828-1833.

Louisiana Hubard went to Richmond in 1828 to attend school, and there are a number of letters that were exchanged between her and her brothers, Edmund Wilcox Hubard at Saratoga, where he assumed, as agent, the management of his mother's, Susan Wilcox Hubard Maury's affairs, and Robert Thruston Hubard, at Hampden-Sydney College, later at the University of Virginia, from which he wrote detailed letters about the colleges and their students. In a letter, dated 15 March 1828, he wrote of an injury received by Professor Cushing at Hampden-Sydney, while demonstrating the workings of a battery. Louisiana Hubard apparently boarded in Richmond with the family of G. Baker, leaving there after Baker's suicide in April 1828.

There are a number of letters to and from the young Hubards and their friends, during this period, that are filled with neighborhood news and gossip from various places, including accounts of parties and love affairs. The May and Moseley families, among many others, are mentioned.

Susan Wilcox Hubard Maury died around 31 October 1829, and there follow letters and papers about the settlement of her estate. Concern for Louisiana (Lou) Hubard is evidenced in the letters of her brothers, following their mother's death. In October 1832, Edmund Wilcox Hubard took her to Sweet Springs, Va., where Robert Thruston Hubard joined them after Lou became very ill. After a short time, she died and was buried there. There are letters of condolences, among them one from Martha Burke Jones Eppes.

During this period there was correspondence between Martha Burke Jones Eppes and Samuel Branch, an attorney, about her business affairs; and more correspondence with John C. Page, who, though he wanted to give up management of Martha Burke Jones Eppes's affairs because of his ill health, apparently did not do so.

1834-1842.

Willie J. Eppes of Mill Brook, was married in 1835, to Ann Cox of Edenton, N.C., according to letters to her, 9 February 1835, from a friend in Petersburg; and one, 8 August, from M. L. M., Edenton, the latter letter giving much news of that town and its residents.

Letters also intimate that Robert Thruston Hubard married sometime before 1836, Susan Bolling, daughter of Lenaeus Bolling and sister of Philip A. Bolling, and lived at Rosny. He practiced law at Farmville and surrounding country, leaving Edmund Wilcox Hubard alone at Saratoga. In 1838, Robert Thruston Hubard went to Richmond, as member of the Virginia House of Representatives.

There are papers during this period concerning moving St. Peter's Episcopal Church to Curdsville, Va., near Saratoga; a good deal of material about this church follows through the years, the Hubard family taking an active part in its affairs.

In 1839 letters, there is mention of Edmund Wilcox Hubard running for Congress, followed by a great deal of correspondence concerning his successful campaign. He served in Congress from 4 March 1841 to 3 March 1847. (For more Edmund Wilcox Hubard papers, see undated subseries 1.14.2.) In 1841 letters, there is mention of his attentions to Sarah A. Eppes, daughter of John Wayles and Martha Burke Jones Eppes of Mill Brook, whose other daughter, Mary Eppes Bolling, had married Edmund Hubard's cousin, Philip A. Bolling.

Prior to this time, the Hubards had dealings with Rives & Harris, factors of Richmond. A letter from Anthony Thornton telling of his partnership in the firm of Carrington, Gibson & Thornton, apparently made them decide to change over to this firm. Later, in 1847, Edmund Wilcox Hubard dealt with Deane & Brown.

A large number of letters were sent to Edmund Wilcox Hubard in Congress from constituents, friends, relatives, asking favors, and addressing such issues as the proposed National Bank and the question of slavery.

There are a number of letters from Robert Thruston Hubard at Rosny, to his brother, Edmund Wilcox Hubard in Congress, about crops, home, family, and neighborhood news, and politics. In 1841-1842, there was apparently a pressure for money, and there was a great deal written about efforts to collect debts and fear of bankruptcy, particularly in the case of Philip A. Bolling, whose financial situation seemed to grow steadily worse. The possibility of the old family place Chellow being sold was discussed at length, and it was finally bought by Robert Thruston Hubard around 23 August 1842.

J. W. Flood continued to write long letters, chiefly about politics, to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, and there are a number of letters to him from Thomas Ritchie of the Richmond Enquirer and from a number of his fellow Congressmen.

1843-1853.

Joseph B. Littlejohn, brother-in-law to Martha Burke Jones Eppes, moved to Tennessee, and, about this time, there appears the beginning of a prolonged correspondence between the families there and in Virginia. Littlejohn's son-in-law, Lewis Williamson, corresponded with descendants of Mrs. Eppes. There was also correspondence with Mrs. Eppes about her property in North Carolina, particularly the plantation Quitzni, situated in Bertie County, and apparently handled for her, with other property in North Carolina by her brother-in-law, Andrew Joyner.

In late November or early December 1846, Edmund Wilcox Hubard married Sarah A. Eppes, daughter of John Wayles and Martha Burke Jones Eppes of Mill Brook, and, in 1847, Hubard apparently was retired from public life and was living again at Saratoga.

Susan Bolling Hubard, wife of Robert Thruston Hubard, died in October or November 1849, after which time Robert Thruston Hubard wrote letters to his brother Edmund Wilcox Hubard about his loneliness. He spoke of several older women who served as housekeepers and helped with his children. The health of Robert Thruston Hubard, according to his letters, was increasingly poor.

Beginning around 1852, Edmund Wilcox Hubard received letters from sons of Robert Thruston Hubard, his nephews, James Lenaeus Hubard and Robert Thruston Hubard, Jr., at the Virginia Military Institute, later farming at different places, or attending the University of Virginia.

In 1853, Robert Thruston Hubard moved to Chellow, the family home, bought some years previous from Philip A. Bolling. Robert Thruston Hubard apparently purchased also Whispering, the home of his uncle, Lenaeus Bolling, who was his father-in-law as well, and, at one time, mentioned keeping Rosny, where he had lived when first married, as it had belonged to his wife, Susan Bolling Hubard.

In 1853, there is mention of Edmund Wilcox Hubard's being made president of the Farmville and Buckingham Plank Company, and there follows much correspondence about stock, construction, tolls, maintenance, and similar matters.

During this period, the two Hubard families, as well as many others, often visited various springs in Virginia, including Alleghany, Red Sulphur, White, and Salt Springs; they also wrote in detail about them in many of their letters.

Other correspondents not mentioned in the box list below include Augustus A. Chapman (1803-1876), congressman.

1854-1860.

In June 1854, Edmund Wilcox Hubard was elected vice president for his county of the Union Agricultural Society of Virginia and North Carolina, Petersburg, Va. In November 1855, S. Bassett French wrote to him about a petition to the legislature from that organization, and about similar matters in November 1857.

During this period, Robert Thruston Hubard, in his letters to his brother, mentioned cultivation at Whispering, the former home of Lenaeus Bolling. There was considerable correspondence about the Farmville and Buckingham Plank Road and much about presidential candidates, the banking system in Virginia, and other political matters, including disunion, and emancipation of enslaved people.

On 16 October 1856, Edmund Wilcox Hubard received a letter from John T.

There are also a few other papers pertaining to Watkins's organization, the Cumberland African Society for the Amelioration of the Moral and Religious Condition of the Colored People of the County, including its constitution, a letter to newspaper, and related items.

One, dated 4 September 1857, described the persons in Washington with whom he had come in contact.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard had correspondence in this period concerning the Farmville and Buckingham Plank Road, selling Buffaloe in Nelson County, Va., and with prospective teachers for his children at Saratoga. A letter from J. W. A. Saunders, apparently living in the neighborhood, written 15 June 1859, requests that two of his boys be allowed to attend classes under a teacher procured by Hubard with Saunders paying tuition for them. This is apparently the beginning of the Saratoga Home School, which continued for some years, and about which there is a good deal of correspondence.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard received letters periodically from the sons of his brother Robert Thruston Hubard, particularly James Lenaeus Hubard, concerning the latter's marriage in November 1860 to Isaetta Randolph of Albemarle Co.

1861-1865.

The material for the Civil War period covers a wide variety of subjects, including disunion, secession, emancipation, and the formation and maintenance of the Confederacy. Beginning in January 1861, letters are filled with questions as to organization of the state militia, arming soldiers, and providing ammunition, and buying supplies for farms and enslaved people (such as lead, powder, salt, leather and shoes), while it was still possible to do so. There are also warnings to individuals to prepare against invasion by the enemy, and against Northern spies.

In 1861, Edmund Wilcox Hubard was defeated in his bid to serve as representative from Buckingham County, Va., to the convention to be held in Richmond in February, and there is correspondence concerning the ineligibility of the successful candidate, Forbes, who already held a political position as sheriff of the county. Beginning in May 1861, there are letters about trains of soldiers, equipment for companies, supplies, drilling, the reaction of women to the situation, destitute soldiers of families and relief for them, and similar matters.

There is also correspondence about procurement of teachers for the Hubards at the Saratoga Home School, and concerning children coming to board and attend school there. On 14 March 1863, Sue Hubard, daughter of Edmund Wilcox Hubard, wrote a long letter to a cousin describing school life, teachers, and pupils.

In 1863, there was mention of the possibility of nominating Edmund Wilcox Hubard for governor of Virginia, but nothing, apparently, came of it. In that year, he was appointed as appraiser for Virginia under the recent impressment act of Congress.

Martha Burke Jones Eppes, widow of John Wayles Eppes, died at Millbrook, Buckingham County, on 6 December 1863; her will had been completed on 6 June 1861. There is an account of her death and description of her character, and, for some time, there are papers referring to the settlement of her estate, sale of enslaved people, and efforts to collect money owed to her.

There are letters from members of the family in the Confederate service and at home, some of them noting their suffering from the effects of war. In 1865, there are papers dealing with the Freedmen's Bureau and arrangements for hiring freedmen. There are also pardons, oaths of allegiance, and similar items.

Among other papers from this period are:

1861: A letter, dated 6 April 1861, from Robert Thruston Hubard to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, includes genealogical notes on the Hubards and Thrustons, and discusses provision for their descendents. There are two letters to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, from J. A. Cowardin at Richmond, dated April 1861, concerning a concoction made from prickly ash bark, apparently believed to have a great curative value. (See letter dated 18 August 1871 for information on scheme for preparing this potion for sale.) In a letter, dated 28 August 1861, Robert Thruston Hubard wrote to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, telling of the whereabouts and situations of the former's children. There are letters, dated November 1861, from Robert Thruston Hubard to Edmund Wilcox Hubard concerning the danger of southerners wanting the Confederate government to buy their produce because of the lack of sales due to blockade of ports, which would result in higher taxes and inflation of currency. This letter also mentions the standards by which taxes on land and enslaved people could be returned to the government. In a letter, dated 1 December 1861, Robert Thruston Hubard warned Edmund Wilcox Hubard against investing too heavily in Confederate bonds.

1862: There is a letter, dated 13 February 1862, from William M. Burwell at Clarke County, Ala., telling of hard times and poor crops. There is a letter, dated 21 February 1862, to Edmund Wilcox Hubard from his nephew, James Lenaeus Hubard, officer in the 44th Virginia Regiment, stationed in the mountains near Staunton, telling of his life there, complaining of bad management in putting generals in terrains different from what they were used to, describing people in the region, and commenting on the war in general. There is a letter, dated 17 September, from R. T. Lacy at New Kent, Va., describing the desolation left by fighting near Williamsburg earlier that year. In a letter, dated 29 December 1862, James A. Seddon, Confederate secretary of war, wrote to Edmund Wilcox Hubard that he was enclosing printed suggestions for manufacture of nitre.

Among other papers from this period are:

1864: There are letters, dated 4 and 21 March 1864, from Francis Eppes at Tallahassee, Fla., telling of his return to Florida from North Carolina, with the people he enslaved (probably through inheritance at the death of his stepmother, Martha Burke Jones Eppes of Mill Brook). He wrote also of the Battle of "Oluska" (Olustee), Fla., and about news of members of his family in the army and at home. There is a letter, dated 24 March 1864, from Nicholas W. Eppes, son of Francis Eppes, at a camp near Dalton, Ga., to his aunt, Eliza Eppes, about camp life and the high morale of soldiers of the Army of Tennessee after the replacement of General Braxton Bragg by Joseph E. Johnston. He also mentioned snow and snowball battles. There are Confederate tax returns, dated 18 July 1864, and an item, dated 19 July 1864, mentioning standards for taxes. There are resolutions from an 1864 meeting at Pulaski, Va., about commissioners increasing prices and taking breadstuffs. In a letter dated 4 November 1864, Robert Thruston Hubard, voiced objections to enslaved people being put into the Confederate army. There is a list of taxes in kinds, dated 21 December 1864.

1865: There is an unsigned letter, apparently from Eliza Eppes to one of her brothers, dated 20 March 1865, about the settlement of their inheritance from their mother. There are notices and letters from Robert Thruston Hubard, dated 1 September 1865, to creditors, urging payments on notes, and explaining the necessity for payment because of the loss, through emancipation of enslaved people, of "upwards of two thousand millions of dollars, to the South". There are receipts, dated 8 September 1865, for surplus horses for the U.S. Army, bought by Edmund Wilcox Hubard. There are contracts and other items relating to the work of freedmen. There is an extract of a letter, dated December 1865, from Nicholas W. Eppes, mentioning his army experiences, fighting in both battles of Manassas, at Missionary Ridge, and at Gettysburg. In a March 1865 letter, Eliza Eppes wrote to "Nannie" of harsh treatment by Northern soldiers.

1866-1872.

Much of the correspondence immediately following the Civil War dealt with hard times, plans for making a living, and contracts with freedmen to work on the plantations and as house servants. Edmund Wilcox Hubard had hides cured by other persons on shares, kept up the Saratoga Home School at his house, and, in 1866, took Sarah A. Eppes Hubard's aunt, Matilda Eppes Spooner, to board. His financial condition, however, like those of many others, grew steadily worse, threatening him with bankruptcy, as was the case with Phillip A. Bolling also. Edmund Wilcox Hubard corresponded with a number of persons, relative to borrowing money and selling his lands in Nelson and Buckingham counties, Va. Sarah A. Eppes Hubard made ketchup and vinegar for sale and her husband sold a number of his books. Their daughter, Susan (Sue) W. Hubard, made efforts towards getting employment, becoming more and more interested in writing for newspapers and magazines.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard corresponded extensively with John D. Imboden, a former Confederate general, who was engaged in the real estate business at Richmond, Va., chiefly about the sale of Hubard's properties. Edmund Wilcox Hubard had correspondence with his brother, Robert Thruston Hubard, about financial affairs. This correspondence was carried on after Robert Thruston Hubard's death in 1871, with Robert Thruston Hubard, Jr., attorney at Farmville, Va.

There are scattered references to searches made for natural resources--particularly oil, copper, and black lead--on Edmund Wilcox Hubard's lands.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard continued in his efforts to build a railroad through his community, and there are a large number of letters and other papers relating to this venture. The proposed railroad line was referred to as being between Lynchburg and Richmond in April 1867; as the Buckingham and Farmville Railroad Company, with Edmund Wilcox Hubard elected president, in August 1869; and, in November 1869, as the Farmville, Cumberland, and Buckingham Railroad. Starting in 1871, there are many references to its being narrow gauge.

There are many papers concerning the settlement of the estate of Martha Burke Jones Eppes, which consisted of property in Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Lawsuits connected with the inheritance continued, apparently, for a number of years.

There are scattered letters from the family of Francis Eppes, half brother of Sarah A. Eppes Hubard, in Florida, telling of family affairs, hard times, and hopes of future success with their citrus fruit trees and bananas.

There are also papers dealing with the Saratoga Home School, including correspondence of the pupils and parents, bills, and similar items. Two letters from Launcelot M. Blackford, 4 April 1866 and 11 July 1870, were written on the subject of the school, and there is an annual report of the school, dated 14 July 1870.

There are several letters that were exchanged between Pocahontas Meredith and her father, W. C. Meredith, mentioning money for Poca's tuition at the Saratoga Home School, and there are later letters from her at Winchester, Va., at home and at school. Apparently W. C. Meredith married a daughter of Philip A. Bolling and Mary Eppes Bolling who had died sometime before this period. In June 1868, Poca wrote from Winchester of the marriage of her father and also of her older sister.

Mill Brook, the home of the Eppes family, burned on 6 September 1866; there is a list of articles saved from the fire. Eliza Eppes, unmarried Eppes sister of Sarah A. Eppes Hubard, apparently lived for a time after Mill Brook burned at Saratoga with the Hubards. There are a number of letters and other items addressed to her. Mary Eppes Bolling died 22 October 1867, and there are letters concerning her death. Philip Bolling wrote, 30 June 1868, describing with enthusiasm his new home, Glebe, in Amherst County, Va., and August 1868, mentioning his second marriage, to Anna Tappan.

In August 1866, Edmund Wilcox Hubard was appointed delegate to the Union Party Convention in Philadelphia, Pa., which prompted him to petition Congress to lift restrictions imposed under the fourteenth amendment that barred him from holding office. He received a letter, dated 23 May 1872, stating that the Amnesty Bill had passed, and that restrictions on Hubard were lifted.

John E. Hubard, son of Edmund Wilcox Hubard, studied medicine at the University of Virginia beginning in 1870, and there are letters written by him telling of his life, studies, and social contacts. In a letter dated 5 January 1871, he mentioned making New Year's Day calls on his professors. In 1871, he relocated to Baltimore, Md., to finish his medical education. There are letters from him there mentioning his work. During this period, it appears that Edmund W. Hubard, Jr., was still at Saratoga, and that Willie J. Hubard, the youngest son, was still in school.

Susan W. Hubard, the only daughter, wrote long and descriptive letters of her visits to various places. On 27 April 1870, she wrote to her father from Richmond to tell him about the floor at the Court of Appeals at the Capitol falling, killing 53 and wounding many others. There are letters, one dated February 1872, from Susan W. Hubard, in which she described another visit to Richmond, and another dated 10 July 1872, describing a stay at White Sulphur Springs. Dated November 1872, there is a letter from Edmund W. Hubard, Jr., at Richmond, about a concert by violinist Ole Bull, and another written at Covington Academy, Covington, Va., where he was teaching school. There are a number of letters dating from this period addressed to and from the young Hubards and their friends, in which they wrote of trips, love affairs, visits here and there, social gatherings, neighborhood news, and gossip.

In May 1871, Edmund Wilcox Hubard received estimates for building a new courthouse for Buckingham County, Va., and there is correspondence on this topic for some time, including a letter, dated 4 August 1871, concerning the history of the courthouse.

He considered a trade, then bootblacking, then tried farming in Texas on a rented place with freedmen, all unsuccessfully. At the time of writing, he had taken up the study of law. In an item, dated 26 May 1866, Robert Thruston Hubard wrote about registering enslaved people at the end of the Civil War, in case of future compensation by the U.S. government. There is a letter, dated 2 August 1866, to Edmund Wilcox Hubard from A. Thornton of New York, concerning business affairs and news of Thornton's family.

There is a letter, dated 13 September, from Henry A. Wise of Richmond, commenting on the times and the men in leadership positions. There is a letter, dated 20 November 1872, from Gilbert Carlton Walker (1833-1885), representative from Virginia and governor, relating to proposed immigration into Virginia.

1873-1882.

In 1873, Edmund W. Hubard, Jr., wrote to his family from Alleghany County, Va., where he taught and served as principal of the Covington Academy. He included in his mail a pencil sketch of the Academy building. He told in detail of his life there, of social contacts, and of his tentative engagement to Miss McDonald, which was apparently called off. Later in 1873, he moved to Enniscartha, Va., and wrote describing his situation in the household of Tucker S. Coles at Green Mountain, Albemarle County, Va., as tutor to his three boys, giving details of the house and the family's manner of living. In 1876, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., studying law at the University of Virginia, wrote letters from Charlottesville before returning to Saratoga to practice law. There are a great many letters and papers concerning his law practice in the vicinity of Buckingham County, Va.

There are papers dating from this period that concern Edmund Wilcox Hubard's proposed railroad, mostly attempts to discourage him from proceeding with the project. Filed with December 1873 papers, there is a copy of an account, included apparently in Congressional House Documents, of the case of Col. A. B. Steinberger, who was apparently engaged to Sue Hubard and his difficulties in Samoa. Dating from January 1874, there are letters about Col. Steinberger being in the United States and expected at Saratoga, which apparently never happened. There are copies of letters written to him by Sue Hubard (see also undated material), and letters written to her by various persons concerning Steinberger and her engagement to him, and to government officials asking for information about him and his whereabouts. References to him are scattered through the papers until November 1878, when a letter from an unidentified writer, mentioned that Sue Hubard had broken off her engagement to Steinberger.

There are letters from A. Thornton in New York, giving family news; also from various members of the Eppes family, in Florida, chiefly addressed to Eliza Eppes, either at Saratoga or at Mill Brook, where she occasionally stayed. Willie J. Hubard apparently lived at home during this period, and was engaged in teaching school. Sue Hubard continued to pursue her career as a writer with some success, there being correspondence about copyrights and about her work, including a letter from Whitelaw Reid, of the New York Tribune, dated 3 December 1874, and one from Augustin Daly of New York, dated January 1875, concerning an article and play she had submitted.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard was appointed, in May 1874, as a delegate to the Atlanta State Tobacco Convention. In September, 1875, he was appointed to represent the Farmer's Council of Virginia at the National Agricultural Congress, Cincinnati, and, in November, 1875, he was sent by the governor to a national convention at St. Louis, Mo., for consideration of construction of a Pacific Railroad through the states and territories. Many of the papers for this period relate to these events. Sue Hubard and her brothers took up the investigation of heraldry about this time, and there is a letter, dated 17 March 1876, from E. Y. W. Custis of New Bern, N.C., with a sketch of a coat of arms taken from a silver tea kettle, supposedly from the Tryon Palace.

In 1876, Sue Hubard visited New York. There is a letter from her there, dated July of that year, in which she mentioned that she had borrowed money from Somerville, a commission merchant in Richmond, using her diamonds as collateral.

There are letters during these years from Pocahontas Bolling Meredith, mentioning her work teaching in schools and as a governess. There are also occasional letters from W. C. Meredith, chiefly about personal and family matters.

Edmund Wilcox Hubard died on 9 December 1878, and there are letters concerning his death, and papers about the settlement of his estate. In February 1879, Jane Eppes in Florida wrote to Eliza Eppes concerning his death and told of a spiritual visit from him to her father, Francis Eppes, and other similar experiences on her father's part.

In April, 1879, Sue Hubard wrote from Washington, D.C., of her family's poverty, suggesting taking summer boarders at Saratoga, of her brothers' attitudes towards this plan, and of efforts on her part to sell some family-owned violins. In letters, dated 23 May, 2 June, and 21 June 1879, visiting in Washington, she wrote about many persons she had met, including William Gates DeLuc (1823-1917, Union officer and U.S. commissioner of agriculture); senator Matthew Hale Carpenter (1824-1881); Martin L. Clardy (1844-1914, representative from Missouri); and senator Zebulon Baird Vance (1839-1894, representative and senator, governor of North Carolina), insinuating, as to the last that he was paying her marked attention.

There is a copy of a notice, dated 1880, sent around to the heirs of Matilda W. Eppes Spooner, stating that she had died in November of that year, leaving an estate which would be divided among her nieces and nephews, and recommending that the services of Edmund W. Hubard, Jr., be engaged. There was a great deal of correspondence concerning this matter for some years.

There are a number of letters addressed to members of the Hubard family from relatives or connections, apparently in close touch with those in Buckingham County, Va., but whose connections with them are unclear. There are papers related to lawsuits having been instituted regarding some of the property of Martha Burke Jones Eppes in Tennessee and being handled, apparently, by Tomlin and Tomlin, attorneys, of Jackson, Tenn.

In letters, dated January and February 1881, Sue Hubard at Baltimore, Md., discussed her approaching marriage to John T. Crow (1822-1881), managing editor of the Baltimore Sun, her trousseau, and similar matters. Following the wedding, she described their temporary quarters at Barnum's Hotel. John T. Crow died almost in March. There was considerable correspondence concerning his death, and, subsequently, concerning the settlement of his estate, and the languid state of Sue Hubard Crow, who returned to live with her family at Saratoga, Buckingham County, Va., and who died there around January 1882. (For more Sue Hubard Crow papers, see undated subseries 1.14.3.)

Bolling of Litchfield County, Conn., wrote of the industrial development of New England and compared the economics there with the South and its past reliance on forced labor of enslaved people. In another letter, dated 24 July 1873, he predicted the future development of the South with industry and smaller plantations, instead of the larger ones of the prewar period.

1874: There is a letter, dated 19 January 1874, from Thomas Whitehead (1824-1901), congressman, Confederate officer, editor of the Lynchburg News and the Lynchburg Advance, concerning taxation of tobacco; and another, dated February 1874, about finding Col. Steinberger. There is a letter, dated 6 March 1874, from John Warfield Johnston (1818-1889), senator and state judge, concerning a report from the U.S. Patent Office.

1881-1907, 1930, 1953.

Many papers in this time period relate to political matters. Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., ran successfully for the office of commonwealth attorney, and, in 1883, was elected to the state senate. There was criticism of his holding these two offices, and there is correspondence concerning that issue, as well as letters and papers dealing with both of those offices. Willie J. Hubard, youngest of the sons of Edmund Wilcox Hubard, apparently attended the University of Virginia, in company with his cousin Andrew J. Eppes, son of Willie J. Eppes. Willie Jones Hubard practiced law with his brother, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., in the firm of Hubard and Hubard, concerning which practice there are numbers of papers. In June 1885, E. W. Hubard, Jr., was appointed as a delegate to the Republican state convention; in July, 1894, he received a letter from James D. Brady, expressing regret that Hubard had gone back to the Democratic party. Beginning in 1896, there are letters addressed to Willie J. Hubard, House of Delegates at Richmond, Va.; in 1902, he wrote from the state treasurer's office at Richmond, where he apparently was serving as auditor.

Dating from this period are letters and papers concerning Lucy P. Moseley, daughter of A. F. Moseley, chiefly about schoolwork, and her training as a school teacher. There is also an invitation to her wedding, dated 16 June 1886, and addressed to Dr. John E. Hubard at the Presbyterian church, Maysville, Va. There is mention, in the papers dating from the following years, of Dr. Hubard's ill health, and there are letters, dated February 1892, to the Hubard family expressing sympathy on his death. There is a teacher's certificate, dated August 1892, that was issued to Lucy P. Moseley Hubard by the Buckingham Free Schools, and there are letters to and from her scattered through the remainder of the papers, particularly one, dated 18 November 1906, from her at Washington, D.C., to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., concerning her children and mentioning E. W. Hubard's son, Dabney Hubard.

References to Sarah A. Eppes Hubard, widow of Edmund Wilcox Hubard, are scarce and then practically disappear around 1896; it may be surmised that she died about that time. Eliza Eppes, her sister, died, apparently, in 1884. Andrew J. Eppes, son of Willie J. Eppes, was apparently the superintendent of schools in Buckingham County, beginning around 1884, and there is constant mention of him by members of the family at Saratoga, and letters indicating that he made his home there for some time. In December 1903, Willie J. Hubard wrote to his brother, Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., about the former's approaching wedding at Richmond, 11 December 1903, to Miss Carrie.

There are a number of letters from various relatives and connections of the Hubard family dating from this period, some of the writers being unidentified. Among these letters are some written by:

Mamie (or Manie) J. Lemmon of Covington, Tenn., (17 March 1881) apparently a descendent of the Eppes family, and niece of Matilda Eppes Spooner; and from M. B. Savage, Memphis, Tenn., a cousin (10 March 1881). Both of these writers mentioned their own families and asked about the Spooner estate. W. Littlejohn of Albemarle, Va. (20 March 1884) gave much family news and many genealogical references. L. Conway at Richmond and Charlottesville, Va., (February through April 1885) wrote to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., and Tempe Osborne about family and personal matters. T. J. Shine of Orlando, Fla., (16 May 1886) wrote to Edmund Wilcox Hubard, Jr., about funds for Francis Eppes from the Spooner estate; also Jane Eppes at Madison, Fla., (15 June 1886); John W. Eppes at Madison, Fla., (6 August 1886); and other members of the Francis Eppes family in Florida, discussed mostly family and personal matters.

Pattie Farley and her mother, "Nannie" Farley, at Kanawha Falls, W.Va. (29 Aug. 1886; 21 November 1887; January 1890; January 1892; October 20, 1892; May, 1896) wrote mostly about family matters. Pattie Farley (26 August 1896) also told of her approaching marriage to J. M. Clark, civil and mining engineer, of New Jersey. Nannie Farley mentioned the death of her husband, Tom Farley, in a letter dated 31 July 1903. There are also letters written by children of Robert Thruston Hubard, including one from Louisiana Hubard Randolph, married to Dr. L. C. Randolph (5 March 1891), telling of her own children and some of the children of her brothers.

Processing Information

Processed by: Ellen R. Strong, 1964; Erik D. France with assistance from Mike Workman, April 1990; Dawne Howard Lucas, March 2020

Encoded by: ByteManagers Inc., 2008

Revised by: Dawne Lucas, March 2020 (box-level container information added and series arrangement simplified).

Conscious Editing Work by: Nancy Kaiser, May 2020. Updated abstract, subject headings, and scope and content note.

Updated by: Laura Hart, March 2021

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic and racial identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic and racial identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for identity information to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at wilsonlibrary@unc.edu.
