2.5 linear ft.

Wesley Olin Connor (1841-1920), son of John Wesley Connor (1800-1857) and Henrietta Mayson (1807-1894), was born in Anderson District, South Carolina. He came to Cave Spring, Georgia in 1849 to live with his married sister. In 1857 he began working as an assistant teacher at the Georgia Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb (later named the Georgia School for the Deaf). At the beginning of the Civil War he enlisted in the Cherokee Artillery and served throughout the war in campaigns in Vicksburg, Cumberland Gap, Resaca, Atlanta, Franklin and Nashville. In April 1865 he was captured at Salisbury, North Carolina and held prisoner at Camp Chase near Columbus, Ohio. After the war he returned to Cave Spring and the Georgia School for the Deaf, where he became Principal and then Superintendent from 1867 until 1916.

The collection consists of Connor's diaries (1861-1866) with transcript, genealogy, photographs, Cherokee Artillery Roll, printed material of the Georgia School for the Deaf, and newspapers.
