expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 2. Happy Valley Series, 1930-1967 and undated.

Hickerson's hobby was the genealogy and family history of his and other old families living along the Yadkin River in Wilkes and Caldwell counties in the region known as Happy Valley. In 1940 Hickerson published a book on this region called Happy Valley, History and Genealogy. Much of the correspondence in this series is with descendents of the Lenoirs, Gwyns, Finleys, and other families of the valley, trying to piece together lines of descent. In 1962 Hickerson published a sequel, Echoes of Happy Valley, which was expanded to include excerpts from old letters and diaries with a special section on Civil War narratives, heretofore unpublished. Other correspondence is from friends in Happy Valley, N.C., and their relatives scattered around the country, giving information and encouragement. There are also letters ordering copies of the books, and many letters praising them, as well as letters from Dorothy D. Lenoir of Hattiesburg, Miss., concerning her research on the Lenoir family. There are also letters concerning the restoration of Fort Defiance. Also includes historical and genealogical material Hickerson used in writing his Happy Valley books.
