Description

Sarah Sabina Kean wrote from Ursino to John Cox Morris, her brother, addressed to Butternuts, Otsego, NY. Sarah was worried about the health of her son Jacob Morris Kean and she and her husband, Peter Kean, bought an "electrical machine that was strongly recommended for him." She gave other news of family including her other children and remarked that she and Peter were going to set him up with Sarah Louisa Jay so he would not be an old bachelor.

Collection

The Liberty Hall Collection consists of the correspondence, financial records, legal documents, and other manuscript material of the Livingston and Kean families, dated from 1686-1847. The bulk of the collection is related to Susan Livingston Kean Niemcewicz (1759-1833). The Livingston and Kean families frequently corresponded and held accounts with other prominent colonial and early American families in New Jersey, especially Elizabethtown, Philadelphia, New York City, upstate New York, England, France, and Poland. A small portion of the collection includes correspondence with early Virginia families, unrelated to the Livingston and Kean families.
