Elizabeth Raymond was a Lawrence resident whose grandfather, Joseph M. Raymond, served in the Union Army during the Civil War. This collection contains the elder Raymond's diary entries, personal records, and correspondence with Hila Bennitt, whom he would later marry. Elizabeth Raymond compiled these documents into a narrative about her grandparents' experiences during the war. Copies of that manuscript, "Ohio Volunteer: Joseph Murray Raymond Diaries" are also part of this collection.
The Raymond family papers contain personal papers of Joseph Murray and Hila (Bennitt) Raymond, as well as two generations of their descendants, including six diaries kept by Jospeh Murray Raymond concerning his Civil War service and materials related to Robert Scott Raymond, Jr.'s account of his service with the Royal Air Force during World War II.
