Thirty years later, he built the Lancaster Hotel in Georgetown. The hotel was managed by W.A. Rodgers, whose wife was named Pearl.This is a collection of letters and business papers chiefly concerning the Lancaster family of Georgetown, Kentucky. Among the business papers are account books, promissory notes, cancelled checks, deeds and receipts. Also included are such family papers as a register of births, marriages and deaths, and some family photographs. Some personal papers of Pearl Rodgers dating from 1905 to 1916 are in the collection. A subgroup of papers in the collection contains letters, bills and receipts of various Lexington, Ky. residents and businesses. The connection between these papers and the Lancasters is not clear. The largest number of these papers concern Ruth Adams Smith, who was married to Isaac Y. Smith, a Lexington coal operator. Others mentioned in this subgroup include Mattie Rice, a dressmaker, and the Doyle family of Lexington.Topical arrangement.Doyle family.Doyle, James A, Mrs.Lancaster family.Lancaster, George.Rodgers, Pearl.Rodgers, W.
