Biography
 
The Parsons family papers contain the business records and personal papers of members of a family who maintained a home in Kennebunk, Maine, while conducting business in New York City and in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. The collection centers on the papers of George Parsons and his sons, Henry and William Usher Parsons.
 
George Parsons was born on November 1, 1826 in Alfred, Maine, the son of William and Mary Parsons. He attended school in Alfred and assisted his father on the farm until he was seventeen years old. In the 1840’s with his older brother Edwin, George Parsons entered the office of Carhart & Scott, cotton merchants in Savannah, Georgia. In 1846 the firm name changed to Edwin Parsons & Co. and in 1856 the brothers opened an office in New York. Edwin Parsons took charge of this office and the Savannah company became George Parsons & Co. The brothers were also the principal owners of the Bank of Middle Georgia in Macon. With the coming of the Civil War, the brothers invested funds largely in cotton, which was shipped to Liverpool. The Savannah office was closed in 1861 and did not reopen; the New York office remained open during the war. The funds of the bank were forwarded to London at the beginning of the war, which enabled it to redeem its bills and obligations and pay its shareholders a profit when the war was over.
 
After the Civil War, George and Edwin Parsons made their headquarters in New York City and turned their business interests toward railroads and mining. Edwin Parsons died in 1895. In the 1880’s, George Parsons entered the street railway business in the Savannah area, purchasing the City & Suburban Railway Company. In 1892 the Savannah, Thunderbolt & Isle of Hope Railway Company was established with George Parsons as president. He also had interests in several coal companies around Birmingham, Alabama, as well as in the Sloss Sheffield Steel & Iron Company.
 
In 1902 George Parsons became interested in the development of Sheffield, Alabama, and in 1903 formed the Sheffield Company which built an interurban railway, a power plant and a waterworks for Sheffield and Tuscumbia, twin cities along the Tennessee River. He also served as a member of the board of directors of the Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg Railroad, the South Carolina & Georgia Railroad, and the Sheffield Cast Iron Pipe & Foundry Company.
 
In 1865 George Parsons married Sarah Elizabeth Eddy in Fall River, Massachusetts. Born in 1838, she was the daughter of Lucius Junius Eddy and Louisa Maria Pratt Eddy. George and Sarah Parsons had seven children: Henry, May Eddy [Dwight], Joseph, Charlotte [Milmine], William Usher, Mary Abigail [Parsons Coolidge], and Louise [Ewing]. The Parsons family spent time at their home, Riverhurst, in Kennebunk, as well as in New York City, and on Wassaw Island along the coast of Georgia near Savannah.
 
George Parsons died on December 4, 1907, leaving an estate estimated at $5,000,000. Sarah Parsons died on October 28, 1918.
 
Henry Parsons, the eldest son, was very active in the various business interests of his father. Born in Fall River on October 31, 1866, Henry was a graduate of Columbia University School of Mines, earning a degree in civil engineering in 1888. Soon after graduation he joined his father’s business enterprises in the South, serving as vice president of the City & Suburban Railway Company in Savannah from 1892-1899, as treasurer of the South Carolina & Georgia Railroad Company in Charleston from 1894-1899, and as president of the Sheffield Company from 1902-1923. He was also involved in the Columbia Railway, Gas & Electric Company and the Parr Shoals Company in Columbia, South Carolina.
 
He served as a captain in the Quartermaster Corps from 1917 to 1919, spending part of his time as assistant to the officer in charge of construction on Governor’s Island, New York. Like his father, Henry spent time at Kennebunk, at his office and residence in New York City, as well as in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. Sometime in the 1920’s he seems to have begun to spend longer and longer periods at the family home in Kennebunk, entering into the life of the town and contributing to its civic and charitable organizations. He was on the Executive Committee of the Kennebunk Public Health Association, president of the Chautauqua Guarantors, and supported the Merryland Camp organized by author Margaret Deland to provide a vacation spot for members of the Girls’ City Club of Boston.
 
Henry Parsons never married and died on December 8, 1954.
 
William Usher Parsons, whose papers also make up a part of this collection, was born in Kennebunk on October 24, 1873. Known as Usher to his family, he attended the Halsey School in New York City, the Pennsylvania Military Academy, and Phillips Andover Academy before graduating from the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale in 1895. He also studied law at Columbia from 1895-1897, was a clerk at a law firm in New York City, 1897-1900, Assistant United States Attorney in New York, 1900-1902, and practiced law independently in New York from 1902-1907. He then entered various family businesses, serving as secretary and treasurer of the Sheffield Company and the Sheffield Cast Iron Pipe & Foundry Company. He also served as a director of the Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg, Utica & Black River, and Oswego & Rome Railroads. He was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Quartermaster Corps in 1917 and served in France from 1918 to 1919. In the 1920’s he was a director and vice president of the Lanston Monotype Machine Company, located in Philadelphia. With his father and J. Bentley Squier, he also bought and developed residential property on 138th Street in New York City.
 
Usher Parsons married Katharine Corbin in 1897 and lived in Ardsley, Irvington, New York. They had three children: Katharine Corbin, Edythe Abigail, and George Parsons. Usher Parsons died in Birmingham, Alabama, on May 30, 1933.

Scope and Content Note
 
The Parsons family papers consist primarily of the business records and personal papers of George Parsons and his sons Henry and William Usher Parsons. They reflect the involvement of the Parsons family in the banking, interurban railroad, steel and coal businesses, primarily in Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama.
 
The papers are arranged in four series: Business records, Personal papers, Records of Parsons family trusts, and Ancillary materials. Each series has several sub-series. The collection was largely unarranged upon its arrival at Fogler Library so the processing archivist imposed its arrangement scheme. Documentation received with the collection indicates that sections of the papers were shipped at regular intervals from the Parsons’ New York office to their home in Kennebunk starting in 1909 and running through 1959. Although the original arrangement of much of the collection has been lost, almost all of the material was received in its original file folders and those folder titles are retained here.
 
The collection contains both business records and personal papers of George Parsons and a small number of materials from his brother Edwin Parsons. However the papers of his son Henry Parsons make up the bulk of the collection. Henry worked closely with his father in the various business ventures of the family, and as the eldest sibling also took care of the financial affairs of other family members, especially his sisters. His correspondence, a mixture of business, financial and personal, forms the largest section of his papers. He corresponded regularly with all of his siblings as well as with friends and business associates. The long time span of the letters and their concentration on business give insight into the financial history of a wealthy family and the changing financial history of the country, especially during the Great Depression.
 
The most complete business records in the Parsons papers are for the street railroad companies in Savannah as well as the Parsons companies in Sheffield, Alabama. These records consist primarily of correspondence along with some legal and financial documents.
 
The series outline and description which follows gives a short history of each company and indicates the involvement of Parsons family members in that company. It also lists the major types of records found in each series and sub-series.

Series Outline and Description
 
Series I: Business Records
 
Sub-series 1: Records of Savannah railroads
 
This sub-series is further subdivided into three sub-sub-series: General Savannah railroad correspondence, Correspondence of Savannah, Thunderbolt and Isle of Hope Railway, and Financial and legal documents, Savannah, Thunderbolt and Isle of Hope Railway.
 
Street railroads in and around Savannah began about 1866 when the Georgia legislature issued a charter to the Savannah, Skidaway and Seaboard Railroad Company to build and operate a railroad running from Savannah to outlying communities such as Thunderbolt and Isle of Hope. Other rail companies including the Savannah and Thunderbolt and Coast Line Railroad Company were established soon after. Originally the cars were horse-drawn but were later upgraded to steam and then to electricity. In 1882 several mergers resulted in a company called the City & Suburban Railway which was purchased around 1886 by George Parsons. In 1892, the Savannah, Thunderbolt & Isle of Hope Railway Company was established, with George Parsons as president. The company was re-chartered by the state of Georgia in 1897 with a capital stock of $1,000,000. The City & Suburban Railway Company continued to operate under its own charter although all of its stock was owned by the Savannah, Thunderbolt & Isle of Hope. At this time, the property of another line, the Electric Railway Company, was consolidated with the Savannah, Thunderbolt & Isle of Hope. The Board of Directors of the reorganized company included George Parsons, Henry Parsons, John N. Harriman, J.H. Fall, James H. Johnston, and Edward J. Thomas. George Parsons also acted as president of the company, with Henry Parsons as second vice-president.
 
In 1902, the Savannah Electric Company, managed by the firm Stone & Webster of Boston, purchased the Savannah, Thunderbolt & Isle of Hope Railway and the City & Suburban Railway, ending the involvement of the Parsons family in the street railroad business in Savannah.
 
The general Savannah railroad correspondence, most to George Parsons, is primarily from 1893-1902. Correspondents include J.N. Harriman, Daniel H. Chamberlain, and J.H. Johnston, and discussion centers on financial and operating matters of the Parsons interests.
 
The correspondence of the Savannah, Thunderbolt and Isle of Hope Railway is arranged alphabetically by correspondent’s name and includes letters from J.N. Harriman, J.H. Johnston, and H.M. Lofton, all company officials. Also included is correspondence with the Boston firm, Stone & Webster, about its 1902 purchase of the company. The financial and legal documents include some material from the Coast Line Railroad and the City & Suburban Railway Co., both predecessors of the Savannah, Thunderbolt & Isle of Hope, as well as stock ledgers, contracts, statements of earnings and expenses, and vouchers, some of which deal with payments of claims against the railroad for accidents and property damage along its line. The legal documents primarily concern a suit between George Parsons and J.H. Fall over the sale of company securities.
 
Sub-series 2: Records of South Carolina and Georgia Railroad Company
 
Located in Charleston, South Carolina, this company was reorganized in 1894 from the South Carolina Railway Company, itself reorganized in 1881 from the South Carolina Railroad Company. The South Carolina and Georgia was leased by the Southern Railway Company in 1902. Charles Parsons was president of the company, with George and Henry Parsons serving on the Board of Directors. Henry Parsons also served as secretary and treasurer of the company, maintaining an office in New York City.
 
Records in this sub-series include company correspondence, 1892-1899, especially that of Henry Parsons as company treasurer, and financial and legal records including contracts, vouchers, and treasurer’s daily statements, 1894-1899.
 
Sub-series 3: Records of Augusta Southern Railroad Company
 
This company ran from Augusta to Tenille, Georgia. It was reorganized in 1893 from the Augusta, Gibson, and Sandersville Railroad Company and consolidated in 1894 with the Sandersville and Tennille Railroad. In 1897 it was leased to the South Carolina and Georgia Railroad Company.
 
Records in this sub-series include correspondence, 1897-1898, and records and correspondence concerning receivership of the company, 1898-1900.
 
Sub-series 4: Records of Columbia Electric Street Railway, Light and Power Company
 
This company, located in Columbia, South Carolina, was chartered in 1891, combining several smaller companies established to provide electric power and street railway service in and around Columbia. All of these companies used the Columbia Canal as a source of power. Constructed in the 1820’s as a navigational canal and lock system, it had been converted to a hydroelectric operation in the 1880’s. The Columbia Electric Street Railway, Light and Power Company gradually absorbed other small local companies and under the leadership of Edwin W. Robertson, the company secured control of the Columbia Gas Light Company and the Columbia Water Power Company and consolidated the three companies to form the Columbia Railway, Gas & Electric Company. Robertson also acquired control of the Parr Shoals Power Company, organized in 1904 and located outside Columbia, and constructed a dam and powerhouse there in 1912. Edwin Robertson served as president and treasurer of the Parr Shoals Company and Henry Parsons served as vice-president; the men also owned and operated the Columbia Railway, Gas & Electric Co. Both companies were acquired by the Broad River Power Company in 1925 and later became part of the South Carolina Electric & Gas Company.
 
Records in this sub-series include correspondence, 1904-1924, of Henry Parsons and various company officials, as well as reports of operation of the power plant, 1907-1911, and financial and statistical reports, 1911-1923.
 
Sub-series 5: Records of Parr Shoals Power Company
 
Organized in 1904 by Henry Larkin Parr and his associates, the company developed a water power site on the location of Parr’s father’s grist mill on the Broad River about 25 miles north of Columbia, South Carolina. After the company was acquired by Edwin Robertson, a hydroelectric plant was constructed there in 1912-1914. Henry Parsons served as vice president of this company.
 
Records include correspondence of Henry Parsons, 1912-1916, and information about a robbery at the company, 1915.
 
Sub-series 6: Records of Sheffield Company
 
This company was incorporated in New Jersey in 1903 by George Parsons, Henry Parsons, and W.H. Goadby, a New York stockbroker. With capital stock of $500,000, the company was organized to hold the stock of the street railway and the electric, gas, water and power companies in Sheffield, Alabama. It also operated the Sheffield Development Company, which owned 40% of the residential and commercial property in the town of Sheffield. The Sheffield Development Company had been incorporated in 1902 by local Sheffield men to develop business and commercial property there.  Its name was changed to the Sheffield Land Company in 1932, with stockholders including Henry Parsons, George Parsons Sons, and various other Parsons family members.
 
The Parsons family also held stock in and directed the Sheffield Water Co., which had been incorporated in 1889 to construct and own a water works in Sheffield; and the Sheffield Light & Power Co., incorporated in 1891 by local men to manufacture and produce gas, oil and electricity. They also formed the Sheffield Railway Company to run a street railway from Sheffield to Tuscumbia to Florence, a total of about 9 miles. Henry Parsons served as company president, J.W. Worthington was vice president, William Usher Parsons was treasurer, and L.H. McIntire was general manager.
 
From 1906 to 1915 the Parsons family along with others were involved in the Sheffield Trust Company organized to carry on a banking business and to buy and sell real estate. Henry Parsons was president, William S. Hatch, vice president, and U.B. Jones was secretary and treasurer. These three men also served as trustees and directors of the Sheffield National Bank
 
This area of Alabama, known as Muscle Shoals and encompassing the towns of Sheffield, Florence and Tuscumbia, was of particular interest because of its location near the Tennessee River. Its potential had been recognized early on by John W. Worthington, who came to Sheffield in 1885 and was responsible for organizing the various Sheffield companies in cooperation with the Parsons family. Worthington helped to establish the Tennessee River Improvement Association in 1906 and proposed to make the river navigable by constructing dams which would also produce electric power. In 1918 the building of Wilson Dam at Muscle Shoals near Sheffield began. Approval for the dam had arisen from the need for nitrates for ammunition and explosives; this led to plans for building two nitrate plants and a dam to supply electricity to the plants. The first nitrates were produced in November 1918, but the end of World War I lessened the need for nitrates and led to controversy over what to do with the dam and the site. In 1921, Henry Ford and Thomas Edison visited Muscle Shoals with the idea of buying the dam and developing a large city in the area. Ford’s offer to purchase the dam was turned down by Congress, which later formed the Tennessee Valley Authority to develop the whole river valley.
 
In 1924, after having seen the growth and development of this area for over twenty years, the Parsons family sold all of its various companies in Sheffield to the Alabama Power Company, only retaining an interest in the Sheffield National Bank.
 
The records of the Sheffield Company are divided into five sub-sub-series: Correspondence, Subject files, Financial records, Data and papers concerning sale of company, and Records of other Sheffield companies.
 
Much of the correspondence is with J.W. Worthington, 1909-1913, as well as treasurer’s correspondence of Usher Parsons, and correspondence concerning Muscle Shoals, 1907-1924. Subject files include annual reports, 1903-1925, legal documents, and a scrapbook of clippings about the Sheffield area. Financial records include bankbooks, journals and ledgers, records of earnings, 1905-1915, and financial reports, 1903-1924. Papers concerning the sale of the company date primarily from 1924-1925 and include records on an income tax case and appeal centering around the sale.
 
Records of other Sheffield companies include scattered correspondence, stock information, and financial records of the Sheffield Development Company, the Sheffield Hotel Corporation, the Sheffield Land Company, the Sheffield Light and Power Company, the Sheffield National Bank, the Sheffield Railway, the Sheffield Trust Company, and the Sheffield Water Company.

Sub-series 2: Papers of Henry Parsons
 
This sub-series is divided into four sub-sub-series: Correspondence, Financial, Income tax records, and Legal documents.
 
The correspondence is the largest section of the collection and dates from 1892 to 1954. A meticulous record-keeper, Henry Parsons arranged his letters alphabetically by subject or by correspondent, and the folder headings used here are those assigned by him. The wide-ranging subject matter reflects Henry’s involvement in activities in Kennebunk and New York City as well as in the South. Letters to and from his siblings, nieces, nephews and cousins make up a significant portion of the collection and reflect his affection for and interest in his family. He also corresponded regularly with George Towne, the manager of the Parsons’ office at 101 Park Avenue in New York, and with Charles Belyea and C.F. Green, who oversaw the Parsons property in Kennebunk. He remained in contact with business associates such as J.W. Worthington, J.H. Johnston and others long after their professional activities were finished. His support for charitable and civic organizations in both New York and Kennebunk as well as loans he made to individuals and small business ventures he undertook can also be seen in these files.
 
Sub-sub-series 2, Financial, contains information about Henry Parsons’ personal finances, including cashbooks, journals, check registers, etc., as well as information about his personal investments during the 1930’s.

Sub-series 3: Papers of William Usher Parsons
 
This sub-series is further subdivided into four sub-sub-series: Correspondence, Subject and legal records, Financial, and Estate of W.U. Parsons.
 
The correspondence, arranged chronologically, is a mixture of business correspondence and personal letters. Usher Parsons, like his father and brother, maintained an office in New York City and traveled to the various Parsons businesses in the South. Many of his letters also concern his financial investments, and the letters from 1929 until his death in 1933, with their numerous references to the condition of the stock market, bank closings and other financial difficulties, reflect the growing effect of the Great Depression on the fortunes of the family. His personal letters include his war correspondence, 1918-1919, and numerous letters to his daughters, Katharine Parsons Wistrand and Edythe Parsons Rich, and his son, George Parsons. Katharine Wistrand, whose husband Hugo was a Swedish diplomat, was living in Berlin for most of the period of these letters; George Parsons wrote many letters from Saranac Lake, New York, where he was sent to recover from tuberculosis in 1932. Letters to Usher’s estranged wife Katharine, primarily about her financial arrangements, also make up part of the personal correspondence.
 
Sub-sub-series 2, Subject and legal records, includes information about Usher Parsons’ father-in-law, Gen. Henry C. Corbin and other members of the Corbin family, as well as correspondence and legal documents concerning Usher’s involvement in developing property on West 138th Street in New York.
 
Sub-sub-series 3, Financial records, includes check registers, 1905-1932, for Usher Parsons’ personal and household expenses.

The Wassaw Trust was set up by George Parsons’ descendants to manage the property on Wassaw Island. George Parsons purchased the island in 1866 and built a home in the center of the island where the family spent holiday and vacation time through the years. In 1969 the island was sold by the family to the Nature Conservancy which in turn deeded it to the U.S. Department of the Interior to be kept as a wildlife refuge. The Parsons family retained 180 acres for its own use.
