             Biographical note 
             John Wesley Hunt came to Lexington, Ky. from Trenton, New Jersey, in 1796. He opened a general store and later became a wholesale trader in cotton, tobacco, saltpeter, and especially hemp. He was also involved in horse breeding and in banking. His daughter Henrietta married Calvin Cogswell Morgan, and her son, Confederate General John Hunt Morgan, became famous during the Civil War for his daring raids. Her grandson, Thomas Hunt Morgan, won the 1933 Nobel Prize for medicine for his discoveries about the laws and mechanisms of heredity. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             These are the papers of the Hunt-Morgan family of Kentucky. The collection includes John Wesley Hunt's business records and correspondence, which deal with riverboat trade on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, business conditions in Cincinnati, Lexington, and New Orleans, and the operation of his store. There are also letters from his family in New Jersey, describing life in that area. The collection also includes numerous Civil War-era letters, diaries, and newspaper articles, some of them about the exploits of General John Hunt Morgan. Twentieth-century materials include Thomas Hunt Morgan's childhood letters and the letters his wife wrote to his mother, and records and correspondence relating to the Morgan Heirs Land Co. There are scrapbooks, ledgers, genealogical data, and a group of family portraits, which have been removed to the library's Photographic Archives (PA63M202).
