Jason D. Ledford Family Papers

Identifier: SM 80-10
The collection contains genealogical material concerning the family of Jason D. Ledford of Cherokee County, NC. The main theme of the collection is Nathaniel C. Browder's attempt to establish that Jason D. Ledford (c. 1800-18??) was the son of Peter Ledford, Sr., of Burke County, NC. Browder assembled his evidence through quotations from Ledford descendants and evidence from official documents.

Included in the papers are copies of 1923 correspondence from H.J. Crumley of Benton, TN, to the Pension Commission in Washington, DC, regarding Peter Ledford, Sr. Also included is a photocopy of the death certificate of Lizzie Crumley, a daughter of Jason D. Ledford.
