Periodically, we will announce when a manuscript collection has been processed Our first such announcement is for the “Emlen and Jones Family Papers, ca. 1766-ca. 1976.” Here may be found ancestral information on the Quaker Emlen and Jones families going back to the time of William Penn and Francis Daniel Pastorius in the 17th century and comprised of genealogy and biography, letters, documents and photographs. Some significant letter writers include: Clement Biddle, George Dillwyn, Sarah Foulke Emlen, Samuel Emlen, Abel James and Jonah Thompson. The information for the ten volumes in this collection was compiled by John T. Emlen (b. 1878) and his father James Emlen (1854-1922) with an abbreviated volume prepared by Woodruff J. Emlen (b. 1913). A genealogical chart accompanies the finding aid.
