This collection includes documents of several generations of this Southern family, who lived in Washington, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee. This collection documents the lives of Judge Garnett Andrews (1798-1873), his son Colonel Garnett Andrews (1837-1903), and his son Garnett Andrews, Sr. (1870-1946). There are also documents detailing Andrews family genealogy, as well as other allied families such as Ball, Beirne, Bowen and Lenoir. There are photographs of family members, correspondence, documents, publications and manuscripts. Of particular interest is the journal of Eliza Frances Andrews (1840-1939), daughter of Judge Andrews. Eliza Andrews wrote several books, articles and essays (under her own name and under her pen names, Fanny Andrews and Elzey Hay), including the popular War Time Journal of a Georgia Girl, 1864-1865 (D. Appleton and Co., 1908), A Family Secret (as Elzey Hay) (Lippincott, 1876) and several botany text books. Her journal documents the South during Reconstruction from 1870 to 1872.
