Henrie family biographies

Dates: 1868-1976

This collection consists of biographies of Henrie family members, correspondence of Myra Mayall Henrie (d.1893), a Henrie family bulletin (June 1959), four photographs of Henrie family members, and biographies of Robert (1823- ), and Elizabeth Johnston (1825- ) by Alice J. Nielson. Nielson also wrote the biography of Amanda Bradley Henrie (1829-1903). The Myra Henrie correspondence deals with family matters and was written between 1868 and 1879.
