Boardman, Schroeder, and Wright Family Papers

 Series
Identifier: Series 3

Scope and Contents

The correspondence contained within the collection is primarily that of the Boardman’s daughter Cornelia Boardman with her siblings, cousins, and extended family members including the Lane, Ruggles, and Whiting families. It also includes papers of Cornelia’s brother-in-law John Frederick Schroeder, who married her sister Caroline. Schroeder’s correspondence includes both family matters and documents pertaining to his work as a minister. Because digitization of this collection requires item-level metadata, staff members have worked to identify correspondents using historical genealogies, census records, and online resources. Please see the source notes for publications consulted during this process.
