Eastern Shore Public Library recently received a donation of over 1,600 letters written by members of the John E. and Margaret LeCato Mapp family of lower Accomack County. The collection spans over 80 years and also contains family photos.
The bulk of the collection covers the period of 1884 -1929, a time of growth, wealth, prosperity, and tremendous change for Accomack and Northampton counties.
The collection is not yet available to the public. ESPL is currently seeking funding to process and preserve this wonderful resource.
