Alexander Frank Papers, 1858-1878

Alexander Frank (b. ca. 1815) was a Davidson County, North Carolina farmer. Two of his sons, George W. Frank (b. ca. 1840) and Jesse M. Frank (b. ca. 1843), served as privates in Co. B, 48th North Carolina Infantry. Jesse was captured on September 12, 1862 and later paroled. George died of disease in Richmond on November 13, 1862. Besides letters written during the war, the collection includes letters written to the Frank family from relatives who left Davidson County in the 1850s and moved to Missouri, Illinois, or Kentucky.
