Worley Furnace-Tn-1872-Historic LH-Cover
Item #: NEW-003862

Click image to enlarge
Rare letterhead from the Worley Furnace Company, Manufacturers of Hot Blast Pig Iron. Cover with a clear cancel from Worley Furnace Tennessee, a discontinued post office. Letter signed by Albert B. Payne. Letter does not relate to the furnace. This furnace was named Worley for a slave who was highly treasured by Montgomery Bell. The following is information taken from the web. DICKSON, TENNESSEE James Worley, African American In John Livingston's biographical sketch of Montgomery Bell, he wrote of James Worley: He [Worley] had worked with his master at the hatting trade, and was his most efficient and useful assistant in bringing order out of chaos in which he found the iron business when he commenced it. James frequently carried large quantities of iron and castings to New Orleans and Cincinatti, sold them and received the proceeds, and never a dollar lacking when he made a return of his stewardship... James assisted him [Bell] in selecting ore banks and water powers, and indeed in every branch of his business. James Worley was a very shrewd, sensible, strong thinking man....and his master now states, that he is more indebted to James than to any one else for much of his property. When Bell built his last furnace in 1844, he paid tribute to his faithful assistant by naming it 'Worley Furnace'. As Bell's agent, James Worley became Tennessee's first prominent African-American. Today with Worley's help, Montgomery Bell is considered Tennessee's first capitalist and industrialist and is a legendary figure in Tennessee folklore. This information from the book: CUMBERLAND FURNACE: A frontier Industrial Village. Permission of the author:George E. Jackson

Carmack Dead-Rutherford Reporter -Nov 13 1908
Item #: TEN-003110

Click image to enlarge
Murfressboro newspaper reports the assasination of Eugene Ward Carmack, killed on the streets of Nashville. Two pages are missing from the paper and all have been encapsulated in heavy mylar to protect it. The front page has quite a bit of damage, especially at the fold with acidic browning and some loss of text. Also heavily chipped at the bottom edge, not affecting the text. More loss on the back page which does not affect the news of Carmack's death. Included is the editorial page which covers the death and it is in relatively good condition. The scan looks worse than it looks in person and was affected by the heavy mylar. Ignore the pinkish cast.

William Polk-Tn-1810-Land Document
Item #: TEN-000311

Click image to enlarge
This is an oversize document, measuring 15 and a half inches by 10 inches, 4 pages, front to back. Holes and separation along the folds. Some of the separations have been repaired with archival tape, others not. William Polk and Charles Polk had inherited land from Thomas Polk. Evidently part of the land also belonged to George Doherty, who was also deceased at this point. I couldn't bear to read all of this long document and a one sixth of the last page is missing anyway, as can be seen in the scan. This document was signed by Will Polk and George Washington Campbell. Both Doherty and Thomas Polk were famous patriots and the Polk family's geneology is well known by most North Carolinians and Tennesseans. This item is being sold as is. Doherty was one of the signers of the Constitution for Tennessee.
