- - - Title: Oakley-Hawley Family Papers, 1766-1951
Quantity: 2.6 c.f. (6 archives boxes and 3 volumes)
Call Number: Wis Mss QM
Abstract: Papers relating to a lengthy genealogical study apparently initiated by William D. Hawley of Malden, Massachusetts, about 1870, and continued by Mary Oakley Hawley of Madison, Wis. Much of the correspondence consists of intra-family letters dealing with the collection of genealogical data on the Oakley, Hawley, Hough, Shriver, Scidmore, Queen, Benedict, Church, Atwood, Sherman, and other related families. Four volumes consist of final tabulations of the collected data. A few letters written by Eliza R. Scidmore, author of Jinrikisha Days in Japan and other works on the Far East, are included, as are two diaries she kept during her travels in the Orient, 1900-1901 and 1912-1916, and the manuscript of an unpublished novel, “I, Anastasia.” Early documents include a report of the tax assessors of Northampton, Massachusetts, 1766; deeds to land in Massachusetts and New York, 1789; promissory notes, receipts, a few family letters, and photostatic copies of vital statistics recorded in family Bibles. A volume dated 1805 contains the ritual of Free Masonry as recorded by J. Church.
