Compound Item Description
Title The Abercrombie Family Scatters
Description This hand-written manuscript chronicles that life and times of Grandmother Minerva Abercrombie in the years after the Civil War. As a girl, Minerva left South Carolina to go to school in Philadelphia, then lived in Montgomery, Alabama, and eventually found herself in Texas. The manuscript recounts how she married her husband, John Abercrombie, and their years married together. Though John had been an apt cotton farmer during the slave years, Minerva persuaded him to let their son Jack run the plantation after the war, when hired labor was needed. Jack ran the plantation to ground and it was sold to pay the mortgage. Jack then bought a cotton farm in Brazos, Texas, and died of malaria. The manuscript then recounts the years of Minnie Fisher Cunningham's parents as cotton farmers in Texas.
