Correspondents include Barnsley's business partners John Day, William D. Duncan, John R. Gardner, Edmund M. Sager, and James Sager and family members including his wife Julia Scarborough Barnsley, his uncle George Barnsley of Liverpool, and his children. Many of the family letters were written from Woodlands Plantation in Bartow County, Georgia to Barnsley while he attended to business in Savannah (Ga.), Mobile (Ala.), and New Orleans (La.) and discuss family and plantation matters.
