Scope and Contents:
Materials relating to the public garden of the Historic Homes Foundation, located in Louisville, Kentucky. The folder includes slide list, postcards of the home, notes from the garden designer, a copy of a publication featuring the garden, with a worksheet completed by GCA researcher Anne Bruce Haldeman. The garden and home is noted for being originally designed by Thomas Jefferson.
General:
"This home is a self-sustaining Kentucky plantation of the early nineteenth century. Because no information on the original garden could be found, a typical garden of that time, as it might have been, was designed by a local landscape architect and member of the Glenview Garden Club, Miss Anne Bruce Haldeman."
Persons associated with the property include: John Speed and Lucy Gilmer Fry Speed (former owners, 1810 to 1840); Austin Lightfoot Peay and Peachy Walker Speed Peay (former owner, 1841 to 1865); Dresher family (former owner, 1865 to 1907); Bischoff family (former owner, 1907 to 1945); William Tyler (former owner, 1945 to 1947); Porter Smith (former owner, 1947 to 1958); Historic Homes Foundation, Inc. (owner, 1958 to present); Miss Anne Bruce Haldeman (landscape architect).
Information about the Speed and Peay families is included in Samuel W. Thomas' book, "Oxmoor: The Bullitt Family Estate Near Louisville, Kentucky since 1787."

Scope and Contents:
Lorenzo Dow Turner took this image while doing research in the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia between 1931 and 1933.
Historical:
The settlement of Harris Neck, McIntosh County, Georgia, began when on September 2, 1865, Margaret M. Harris donated her land to Robert Dolegal (the name is also spelled as Delegal and Denegal), who she had formerly enslaved. According to Mrs. Harris' will, she had raised Robert and trusted him to take care of her and her mentally disabled son Bright Harris until their death in exchange for the lands. Mrs. Harris appears in the 1850 Census slave schedule as being the enslaver of 59 individuals. In the 1860 Census slave schedule, she appears as the enslaver of 66 persons.

Robert Dolegal must have sold parcels of his land immediately after he took possession of it. In the Census of 1870, there were 87 African American households and 21 white households in Harris Neck.
Biographical:
Lizzie McIntosh married Sandy Grant on January 21, 1902. They had at least one son named Harry and later in life raised several nephews and nieces.

Sandy Grant owned his farm at Harris Neck, which was worth $200.00 in 1930. Both Sandy and Lizzie had been able to attend two years of school when they were children.

We have no information about Lizzie's passing. Sandy died in 1961 in his 80s. Thus he was alive and most likely witnessed when Harris Neck was destroyed to build a military airport. The residents were given two weeks to move out. On July 27, 1942, all the community's houses were bulldozed and burned down.

According to Mrs. Harris' will, she had raised Robert and trusted him to take care of her and her mentally disabled son Bright Harris until their death in exchange for the lands. Mrs. Harris appears in the 1850 Census slave schedule as being the enslaver of 59 individuals. In the 1860 Census slave schedule, she appears as the enslaver of 66 persons.

Robert Dolegal must have sold parcels of his land immediately after he took possession of it. In the Census of 1870, there were 87 African American households and 21 white households in Harris Neck.
Biographical:
Sandy Grant was born at Harris Neck around 1876, the son of Alexander (Sandy) and Frances (Fannie) Grant. Alexander was an early settler of Harris Neck. Sandy Grant married Lizzie McIntosh on January 21, 1902. They had at least one son named Harry and later in life raised several nephews and nieces.

Sandy Grant owned his farm at Harris Neck, which was worth $200.00 in 1930. Both Sandy and Lizzie had been able to attend two years of school when they were children.

We have no information about Lizzie's passing. Sandy died in 1961 in his 80s. Thus he was alive and most likely witnessed when Harris Neck was destroyed to build a military airport. The residents were given two weeks to move out. On July 27, 1942, all the community's houses were bulldozed and burned down.
