Gurney, Joseph John, 1788-1847
Found in 12 Collections and/or Records:
Includes outline and course materials for five lectures given at Pendle Hill in the winter of 1975, notes on "Ethics and Theology in the Hicksite Separation" and the manuscript of a lecture on "Quakers and the Trinity" given at Swarthmore College in the spring of 1975.
The Cope family was a Quaker family of Chester County and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Baltimore, Maryland. The collection contains family correspondence, genealogical papers and legal papers, a journal (1823) of Ann (Shoemaker) Janney, and other papers of the Cope and related Shoemaker, Yarnell, and Janney families. Individuals represented include Mahlon Day, Joseph John Gurney, and John Janney.
The Mahlon Day papers center on the West Indies journals kept by Day on his spiritual trip with Joseph John Gurney in 1839-1840, and his letters which touch on a range of topics from religious to political to business to family.
The manuscript of John Joseph Gurney includes three parts: "Charlemania Part I," Charlemania Part II," and "An Afternoon at Cambridge and a Morning at Oxford."
According to notes from the curator of Haverford College's Quaker and Special Collections, the manuscript is in the hand of Joseph John Gurney, but is "possibly written in the hand of Anna Gurney, who gave it to Ann Hodgkin, possibly as a wedding present."
This collection is comprised of the single volume manuscript by Joseph John Gurney, which lists corrections to the published manuscript, “Journey in North America, described in familiar letters to Amelia Opie.” Each page of the volume is numbered so that the corrections on each page match the corresponding page of the published version.
This collection includes personal correspondence between Mary B. Parsons and members of the Braithwaite family, primarily Anna and Isaac Braithwaite. Letters concern family matters and, occasionally, meeting activities at Flushing and Kendal and news of Joseph Gurney and Elizabeth Fry. Other correspondents include J. Bevan Braithwaite and Martha G. Braithwaite.
Reproductions of photographs, documents, and objects used as book illustrations or in exhibits. Most of the original photographs, documents, and objects are at FHL but some are from other repositories.
This collection traces several generations of the Quaker Taylor family, but centers on Francis R. Taylor (1884-1947) and George Washington Taylor (1803-1891). The former was an attorney and collector of information about his own and related families, as well as local historical information. The latter, who ran a free produce store in Philadelphia in the period before the American Civil War, was connected through his interests in free labor to many correspondents.
