There are two folders of Comer notebook material. The collection also contains a few photographs, correspondence and several copies of other genealogies and several bound volumes. A post card collection has items sent to Lucy Howard and purchased items, business and legal papers, a copy of a sketch of Cobb Legion Cavalry, photos of Lucy Howard, and family bibles. Two oversized folders contain a Callaway Family diagram and a large, framed photograph. The collection was compiled by Lucy Howard and her sister Pauline H. Comer of Athens, Georgia.
