- This collection consists chiefly of letters to James S. Milling from friends and relatives with the bulk of the letters dating from 1852-1866. Chief topics in the earliest letters in the collection include education and the search for land in frontier areas of the Southwest. James married his cousin, Mary, in 1857 and they had 2 daughters before James moved to Louisiana. Mary sent letters to James about their newborn son, John, and about the effects of the Civil War in South Carolina. James was a physician and planter in Fairfield District, S.C. He moved his slaves to a plantation in Bossier Parish, Louisiana, where he spent much of his time while his wife, Mary W. Milling, and their children remained with her family near Camden, S.C.
