Summary
Papers, 1803-1896, of the Scruggs family of Buckingham and Appomattox Counties, Virginia, consisting of accounts, agreements, bills of sale, bonds, correspondence, deeds, plats, promissory notes, and receipts.

There is a letter concerning the sale of slaves from the estate and a bill of sale for a slave that Thomas W. Scruggs bought from Thomas Jefferson Childers and Elizabeth Childers. There is a promissory note from Thomas W. Scrugg and William A. Scrugg to Henry D. Flood; a deed of trust from Samuel A. Scruggs to Thomas W. Scruggs and William A. Scruggs; a deed between William A. Scruggs and Mary Jane Scruggs, husband and wife; receipts, and undated field notes from a survey for John Scruggs
