        (1816-1887) and his father, Major William Preston, a Revolutionary War officer and U.S.
        Congressman. General Preston married Margaret Wickliffe and their son, Robert Wickliffe

       Scope and Contents 
       The Preston-Johnston family papers (dated 1755-1965; 42 cubic feet; 93 boxes, 1 item, 1
        folder) consists of correspondence, legal documents, genealogies, financial materials,
        business records, and diaries relating to members of the Preston-Johnston family of
        Lexington, Kentucky, including Revolutionary War veteran Major William Preston and his son
        Confederate general and diplomat William Preston (1816-1887). Folders labeled only by date
        contain correspondence from that date range; otherwise contents are reflected by the title
        of the folder.  
       The collection contains records from the Benton-Brant family, Margaret, Robert Wickliffe
        and Philip Preston Johnson I, II, and III, Robert D. Johnson, Brant, Mary, Susan and James
        McDowell, William S. Potts, Sarah McDowell Preston, and Wickliffe and General William
        Preston. Several of the oldest items are legal and military documents which belonged to
        Major William Preston. In addition, there are manuscripts relating to General William
        Preston which reflect the personal side of his family life. Documents and correspondence
        generated by or relating to relatives and descendants of General Preston comprise a large
        portion of this accession. Mementos, letters, diaries, and business records provide a
        glimpse of their religious beliefs, attitudes toward family, war, and politics. 
       The collection includes the will of U.S. Congressman Benjamin Howard; church records from
        the Second Presbyterian Church of St. Louis; diaries of Presbyterian minister William Potts,
        Margaret Preston Johnston and Sarah Brant McDowell Preston; letters by James McDowell
        written while he served in Congress; Civil War letters by Dr. Eugene Johnston (surgeon, U.S.

        attorney and Kentucky Adjutant General, Philip Preston Johnston.
