These papers were previously owned by Elmira Byrd Corell (daughter of William Tazwell Bird and Sarah Elizabeth Arthur; granddaughter of Greenville Arthur and Frances Dakin; wife of Caleb Andrew Corell). Myrtle Corell Myers (daughter of Caleb Andrew and Elmira Byrd Corell) sent me the documents to copy (which I returned to her) and I was given the original documents again after her death.
