She spent the later years of her life researching and collecting family history and working to preserve the family home at 10th and Cass Streets (now listed in the National Register of Historic Places). The collection includes not only her own papers and those of her immediate family, but also those of her grandparents, great-parents, Vermont ancestors and others. The papers consist primarily of correspondence; business and financial papers; eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century estate settlements; legal documents; detailed eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Vermont farm records; and papers related to the Martindale home. Most of the correspondence is among family members and reveals the details of their daily lives: births, courtships, travels, college life, illnesses, deaths, family business matters, personal problems, and accounts of mundane activities such as washing, sewing, cooking, plowing, gardening, etc. The majority of the business and financial papers are the extensive records (circa 1850-1950) for the family's insurance firm, but there are also records from real estate, lumbering, and merchandising concerns.
