Boon, James Papers, 1829-1853, n.d.

While browsing through the North Carolina State Archives website, I came across several collections that might be of interest to people doing research on the Boon/Boone family of North Carolina. It happens that I'm doing a little on that line myself, and this collection is described as follows:

Boon, James Papers, 1829-1853, n.d.
James Boon (1808-?), a free Negro of Franklin County, N.C., was apprenticed to William Jones, a carpenter, June 16, 1827, and was freed from this apprenticeship in September, 1829. He thereafter worked as a carpenter in Louisburg, Littleton, Wilmington, and Raleigh. The papers include both professional and personal correspondence as well as accounts, bills, receipts, and other documents.


To find out more details about the collection, here is the website:
