             Biographical note 
             Thomas S. Grundy owned Valley Hill Farm, near Springfield, Kentucky, and was a breeder of cattle, horses, sheep and pigs. He was well known as the owner of a fine herd of purebred shorthorn cattle. He was also a state legislator, serving in the Kentucky House of Representatives from 1847 to 1851, and in the Kentucky Senate from 1857 to 1861 and from 1885 to 1889. In 1891, he was the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Congress, representing Kentucky's fourth district, but was defeated in the general election.

                     The Miscellaneous series includes materials about and related to the Grundy family. A family tree illustrates the direct descendents of Thomas Grundy, the original owner of the General Store in Washington County, Kentucky. Poll Books from Washington County reveal the votes cast in the area in 1882. Most of the series includes advertisements for goods presumably sold at the General Store or sent to the family based on their interest in purebred cattle and thoroughbred horses. There are passes for fairs and many business cards in the series. Finally there are blank certificates which show participation of some person in the family in the construction of a memorial for Hon. William Goebel, a Governor of Kentucky who was assassinated the day before he was sworn into office in 1900. Broadsides and colorful posters are oversized.
