I am seeking written documents pertaining to A. J. Huestis (1805-1883) father of Wilbur F Huestis. Because Amanda lived about 25 years after the death of her husband, I thought perhaps some of these papers may have passed to her side of the family. They had no children.
This may include copies of sermons, speeches and/or correspondence to or from family members (his children, siblings and/or parents in particular) but also nieces, nephews and/or children and grandchildren. I know that he regularly corresponded with family and hope that some of that exists.
I am hoping to find enough documents to support the writing of a biography or a number of articles that place this man in the context of his time. But it is a challenge. He himself did not leave biographical materials that I am aware of and finding information beyond his personal resume is challenging.
I would also be interested in correspondence between his wife Annis and her children (and their spouses, including Amanda) & grandchildren or other family members. I might also be interested in correspondence between Amanda and her nieces and nephews.
If you think you may have something for me, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
