Charles Richard Staples was born in Lexington, Kentucky in 1875. After attending Transylvania University in his hometown, he worked for the Lexington Electric Light Company, the United States Post Office in Lexington, and then, from 1918 to 1944, for the Southern Railway, also located in Lexington. During this period and continuing into his retirement, he spent a great deal of time researching the early history of Kentucky and the genealogy of early Kentucky families. His 1939 book, THE HISTORY OF PIONEER LEXINGTON 1779-1806 along with numerous published articles in various journals, but especially in the REGISTER OF THE KENTUCKY HISTORICAL SOCIETY helped establish him as well-informed on early Kentucky history.The microfilm is a copy of a memorandum, photograph and sketch by Charles R. Staples, and a history of feuds in Bath and Menifee County, Ky. written by an unidentified resident of the Olympian Hotel.The memorandum descibes a conversation with T.S. Logan, at the Lafayette Hotel Lexington, May 22, 1930. Logan's Civil War activities are outlined, including contact with John Hunt Morgan and imprisonment at Camp Douglas in Illinois. The photograph is of a house in Greeneville, Tenn. The sketch appears to be a crude drawing of the location of a house and a hospital in Greeneville, Tenn.Organized: Memorandum, Photo, Sketch, and History.Logan, T.
