Box 3 (folders 9-12) - 4

Scope and Content Note

Family papers originating with the Dimock, DeWolf, and Knight families include a partial document (ca. 1827) mentioning a George DeWolf and a Bunage Dimock (the meaning of which is unknown), a partial letter written to Dora DeWolf Dimock's sister Gertrude (ca. 1858) from an unidentified family member; a letter (1863) from Nehemiah Knight to his son Henry H. Knight ("Harry," 1843 - 1882), brother-in-law of Joseph Judson Dimock (Jr.) concerning Harry Knight's proposed trip to the Near East ant Europe; and a wedding gift list.

Harry Knight's trip (November 1863 - August 1864) to Egypt, Turkey, Greece and parts of Western Europe is well documented through his letters home. By far the most interesting portion of this series, the bound volume of those letters records Knight's impressions of the many places he visited and the people he encountered.
