Abstract: Samuel Prickett was a resident of Richfield, Summit County, Ohio. He went to California in 1854 to mine for gold, but returned to Richfield in 1864 where he purchased a farm and served as a township trustee and school board member. Prickett was married first to Ann Amelia Garthwaite, and later, to Edith Welton. He had a daughter, Edith. The James Moore family came from Massachusetts to Medina County, Ohio in 1816. He served as county surveyor, township treasurer and Ohio state senator. Fanny Moore was the mother of Elizabeth Stockwell and possibly the grandmother of Sophronia Stockwell Bellows. The relationship between the Prickett and the Moore families is not known. The collection consists of correspondence, particularly of the Moore family of Ohio and Massachusetts. Also legal materials, a cash book of Samuel H. Prickett, and receipts. The correspondence details news of relatives, health concerns, deaths of children, homesickness, religious views, and financial concerns.
