Description (revised)
This folded letter sheet has a manuscript postal marking for MOUNTAIN GROVE June 29, 1859, but I don’t see any other markings, probably there was a stamp or two on there at one time that fell off. This Post Office was in Bath county, Virginia. The letter is addressed to Master Gatewoods, Academy, Pocahontas co., Va., and is a two and a half page ‘Dear boys’ letter written by ‘your pa, S.V.G. The headline is Mountain Grove 29th June ’59 [1859].


After looking around some, I think the writer of the letter was Samuel Vance Gatewood. Samuel was KIA in 1861, just two years after this letter was written. One of his sons was a VMI cadet who later moved to Pocahontas, VA, Andrew Cameron Lewis Gatewood; probably the Cameron mentioned in this letter. S.V.G. used the plural Gatewoods in the address because he’s writing to two sons of his at some school.


Some abstracts:


I have just returned from Big Spring and the upper end of Poca. I went to the Big Spring to Divide the land between your Uncle Warwick & myself. We got it divided but not to my satisfaction & I will not let the Division stand. I went from there to Green Bank, and bought 200 sheep from Billy Wooddell, Bob Hannah is ar[???] sheep for me.


When I came home I found old queen had no milk for her colt and they are feeding the colt and raising it by hand, she has lost her bag and gives no milk.


You write for your Gun, I think Cam you had better not have the Gun some accident might happen, and then I think you will be thinking about Hunting and spend your time that would be more profitably spent at your Books. The boys will be borrowing and hunting with the Gun and perhaps break and bruise the stock up. Mr. Coffee has gone over to the Hot [springs] to see his Father who is there afflicted with rheumatism …


Well, Capt Billy, How do you get on my boy. I want to see you and I want to know how you like your school and how do you like yr teacher …


Ma says she is looking for that letter you promised her. I hope my dear sons you will apply yourselves to your books and learn fast you are both very backward in your Education, work hard and learn fast …. Let me beg you both to be polite and kind to every body and more particularly to Mr. & Mrs. Shanklin Mr. Emerson, do as poor old Dr. Strother used to tell me, let no one out do you in Politeness.


William you must write to sister Susan and Cameron write too, she has gone a long ways off and she will be delighted to get a letter from her Brothers, write to Sis Ma[?] too, she loves you both.


Be sure Cameron to write to Susan & Mr. Taliaferro. Ma sends heap of love to you both. My dear sons good bye.


Condition of the letter rates good, some separations along the folds were mended with archival tape, another old separation mended with an old stamp hinge, ages ago; some staining. Very readable.


As usual with stampless letters, after writing on one or more sides of a sheet of paper, the letter was folded several times and mailed. An interesting letter good for genealogy and history research. See my other auctions for similar items.

Dr. William WALLER Jr.

1739 - ____

ID Number: I32733

  • TITLE: Dr.
  • RESIDENCE: Spotsylvania Co VA
  • BIRTH: 1739, Spotsylvania Co. Virginia
  • RESOURCES: See: will [S3008] [S3675]
Father: William WALLER Sr.
Mother: Ann STANARD? STANDARD?


Notes


i William2 Waller (Dr.) , born 1739 in Spotsylvania county, VA.


"Mary was the Great Aunt of John Waller (c1741) and Dr. William Waller (c1739.) These are the two brothers who, according to Haley, were the original owners of Kunta Kinte. Through their father William they were grandsons of Colonel John. (Alex Haley and Roots the entire genealogy and the book has been declared a fraud and is fiction; debunked by the British scholars-jb)


Many Wallers seem to be confused about the biological relationship between Haley and our family. To the best of my knowledge there is none. (New information, see below.) Haley was descended from Kizzy Waller but all knowledgeable parties seem to agree Kizzy or her descendants, simply adopted the name following the Civil War. Haley shows Kizzy being the daughter of Kunta Kinte and the slave, "Bell". Haley also claims Kizzy’s son, "Chicken" George, was sired by a white man named Thomas Lea. (or Lee).


Tom Lea (of Caswell Co, NC) was the son of Major Lea, grandson of James Lea and Anne Herndon, great grandson of Edward Herndon and Mary Waller. This Mary Waller (1674-1716) was the sister of Colonel John Waller of Spotsylvania County, Virginia, founder of the "Endfield" branch of the American Wallers."
