Most of the correspondence is written from Union County to General George Rust from his nephew Albert, his brothers William and Alfred, and his sister Elizabeth.

Other materials include a slave price list, indenture of property sale, and a power of attorney document.

This collection was originally numbered H-15 and is part of the J. N. Heiskell Historical Collection, courtesy Arkansas Gazette Foundation.


Biographical Note

Albert Rust traveled from Virginia to South Arkansas in 1837. Within a few years his parents, his grandfather, several uncles, and their families settled near El Dorado. General George Rust, Albert's uncle, remained in Virginia but the two men jointly owned property and slaves in Arkansas. Albert Rust served in both the United States and Confederate States Army. After the Civil War, he settled near Little Rock and died in 1870.
