    NICHOLSON-CHRYSTIE FAMILY CORRESPONDENCE. 1804-1842. 58 letters. Fifty-one of the 58 letters in this group were written to James Witter Nicholson (1773-1851), manager of a glass works at New Geneva in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. The Nicholson family, originally from Maryland, is today best remembered for its long and distinguished service in the navy. James W. Nicholson's father, Captain James Nicholson (1737-1804) was ranking officer in the Continental navy during the Revolution. The family had other significant political ties. One of James W. Nicholson's five sisters, Hannah, was the second wife (m. 1793) of Albert Gallatin, secretary of the treasury under Jefferson and Madison. The community of New Geneva had in fact been founded by Gallatin as a speculation, which accounts for James Nicholson's presence so far from the sea. Most of the letters to James were written by three of his sisters: Maria Nicholson Montgomery (b. 1775; 38 letters), Catherine Nicholson Few (9), and Jehoiadden Nicholson Chrystie (3). Maria's letters to her brother are relatively evenly spaced over nearly forty years (1804-1842); for much of this time, from 1809 to 1828, she was married to John Montgomery (1764-1828), U.S. representative from Maryland and, later, mayor of Baltimore. Though these are essentially family letters, there is a good deal of commentary on political and military matters, especially during the War of 1812. The group also includes seven letters between members of the Chrystie family of Albany, New York, into which Adden Nicholson had married. MSN/EA 5002-1 to MSN/EA 5002-56.

    All my estate, real and personal, to the sons of my deceased brother James Chrystie, late of New York, to be equally divided amongst all of them, excepting as follows. To each of my sisters Janet Sommerville, Agnes Curtis and Elizabeth Chrystie the sum of ten guineas, to buy a ring or any thing else they may think proper as a memorial of me. To Hannah Spurlock the house where she and her husband now live together with the lot belonging thereto, as also an annuiety of twenty dollars during her natural life. The law of this Commonwealth not permitting the emancipation of slaves, I desire that Aggy may be permitted to chuse any situation most agreeable to her, that she shall enjoy the sole benefit of her labour and if that should be insufficient for her support that my executors will add such an allowance further as may be deemed sufficient to support her. Bob, Billy and Jinny to be hired out and twelve dolars given to Bob out of his hire, at the expiration of each year, exclusive of the usual terms of hiring. If any of them desire to be sold they shall be at liberty to chuse their master or mistress, but they are not to be sold contrary to their wish or carrried out of the state unless they desire it. My slave Nelson to my nephew John Chrystie and Agnes to Adden Chrystie, the wife of my nephew James of New York. My wearing apparel to be equally divided between Robert Spurlock and James Moody. Thos. Chrystie, James Chrystie, Ben: Oliver Junr. and Wm. Dandridge Claiborne executors. Tho. Chrystie
