Scope and Content Note

The Robert Stephen Wilson Collection includes correspondence, letters, documents and research notes relating primarily to the (Elijah) Clark and Mounger families of Georgia. Original letters date from 1803 and extend through the Civil War and into the 20th century. Information on the Clarks and Moungers and genealogical information on related families (Wilson, Hobson, Thompson, etc.) is extensive. Mr. Wilson's link to the Elijah Clark line is throroughly researched.

Box 1 of the collection contains correspondence between Mr. Wilson and associate Virginia Livingston between 1964 and 1967. These have been copied and arranged by Mr. Wilson for his research purposes.

Box 2 contains correspondence and other papers of Mounger family members and others. Most are originals and some of particular interest might be an 1836 letter to Gov. Schley of Georgia from Howell Cobb, noted Confederate soldier of Georgia-also many letters of GA Gov. John C. Clark and a resolution written at his death.

Box 3 contains correspondence of the Wilson family dating from 1874 to 1959, Mr. Wilson's personal correspondence from 1963 to 1982, personal papers, Wilson family photos and research aids.

Boxes 4 through 13 contain individual family genealogies, including the Clarks and Moungers, with 4 through 10 being an alphabetical collection of family information. Boxes 11 and 12 are an index-sized collection of family information and oversized family information is in Box 13. Among the Clark family papers is a copy of a letter written by Elijah Clark in 1788.
