Description: The Rodney Family Papers is a small collection (62 items) of genealogical notes and miscellaneous personal papers from a Delaware family prominent in the American Revolution and early Federal period of American history. The collection spans the dates 1773-1941 and consists of correspondence, journals, certificates, genealogy, wills, a passport, poetry, newspaper clippings, and essays. Much of the collection consists of photocopies and typescript copies of original materials and family reminiscences. When possible, the location of the original material is noted. Some of the letters and genealogical information has been laminated, making them difficult to read.
