Notes


Varina Anne Banks HOWELL BIRTH: 7 MAY 1826, Marengo, LA DEATH: 16 OCT 1906, New York. Family 1: Jefferson F(inis) DAVIS, MARRIAGE: 26 FEB 1845, Natchez, MS.
granddaughter of Gov. Richard Howell of New Jersey.


Upon Winnie Davis' death, the ownership of Beauvoir reverted to Mrs. Jefferson Davis.
Mrs. Davis had returned to Beauvoir very tired and worn after her husband's funeral. She found several first draft chapters of an autobiography which Jefferson Davis had begun, and she quickly realized that she had an important task to perform ~ letting the world know what sort of man Davis had been. Inspired by this idea, she plunged into the work of massive proportions, totalling 1,632 pages. It was published by the Belford Company as Jefferson Davis, Ex-President of the Confederate States of America, a Memoir by His Wife. Two years later, when the New York World offered her a salary for a weekly article, Mrs. Davis moved to New York, as did Winnie, who was offered a similar corespondent's position. Operating Beauvoir had been a financial strain, and the work provided both with a regular income.


During the period when Winnie had owned Beauvoir, an offer by a hotel corporation of $90,000 for the property had been firmly refused. Both Winnie and Mrs. Davis wanted Beauvoir to become a shrine to the memory of Jefferson Davis. After Mrs. Davis acquired ownership, she also refused offers for the property. However, in 1903, she sold Beauvoir for the token sum of $10,000 to the Mississippi Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans with the stipulation that it would be operated as a Confederate soldiers' home, with the house itself becoming a shrine to the memory of the former Confederate President."


"First Lady - Varina Banks Howell Davis The Briars is one of the best-known plantation homes in Natchez. Believed to have been built by John Perkins in the early 1820s, it was leased by William and Margaret Howell from 1827 to 1850. Their daughter Varina Banks Howell married Jefferson Davis in the parlor of The Briars on February 26, 1845."
