             Scope and Contents note 
             The William W. Ranney papers (dated 1858-1927, undated; 0.5 cubic feet; 2 boxes) document family life in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century in Boston, Kentucky. Descriptions of the problems facing those who moved West in the latter half of the nineteenth century are present in the correspondence as well as personal and business letters. Early letters are from relatives of George Ranney, a schoolboy in Livermore, Kentucky. Correspondents during this period include Abigail C. Clark, Emma D. Sharp, Isabella Smith and Katie McClintock. After 1860 William W. Ranney wrote the majority of the letters to his mother, Susan Tanner or to his sister, Susan Atherton, both of Livermore. This portion includes Civil War letters from military camps in the Deep South, one referring to the appointment of Stephen Burbridge as Brigadier General. Also included are letters from Viva Martin, Susan Atherton's daughter, who married into a tobacco manufacturing family from Greenville, Ky. Her letters mention some of the problems faced by her husband in the depressed agricultural economy after the Civil War.

After the war, Ranney moved to Wisconsin and then to Lansing, Iowa, where he was a druggist, stationer, and attorney.
