The collection consists of letters, deeds, plats, insurance policies, canceled checks, receipts, and other papers concerning the Rountree family that lived in the vicinity of Twin City, Georgia (formerly Graymont and Summit). Included are a few papers regarding the service of Dent Rountree in World War I. Also there are a number of colorful cards, dating from the early 1900's, that advertise businesses in the Georgia towns of Graymont, Augusta, Macon, and Atlanta and several towns outside of Georgia.
