Table of contents
The Lupton family was a Quaker family from Hopewell, Virginia. David Lupton, the son of Joseph and Rachel Lupton, married Mary Hollingsworth at Hopewell Monthly Meeting of Friends in 1777. They had nine children, including a son, Joel, who married Sarah Haines. Joel, and to a lesser extent his brother, Lewis, was known as an inventor who was credited with a number of mechanical improvements to farm machinery. Another brother, Nathan, was involved with his father in the operation of a mill on Babb's Run. Jonah H. Lupton married twice, first to Martha Ann Sidwell, who died in 1836, and second to Lydia Walker. The collection contains correspondence, journals, business papers, pictures and other memorabilia, and miscellaneous materials of the Lupton and related families of Hopewell Monthly Meeting of Friends in Virginia. Correspondents include Mary S. Lupton, David Lupton, Joel Lupton, Nathan Lupton, Hugh S. Lupton, and Carrie D.L. Bond. Of interest is a typescript account of the activities of Hugh S. Lupton during the Civil War (1864) and the original letter written by Susan D. Pierce to Cidney Darlington concerning the Yearly Meeting of Mt. Pleasant, Ohio in 1828. Also of interest is the journal of Virginia civilian Civil War experience by Mary W. Lupton (?), 1862-1864. Collection includes genealogical information on the Lupton, Walker, Jackson, and related families.
