Connelley (1855-1930) was a well-known historian on the American West. He wrote a number of books and contributed to many periodicals. In the early 1900s, he conducted research on the true identity of Josiah Ramsay (or Ramsey), who, as a youth in Virginia during the 1750s, was kidnapped by Native Americans. Ramsay later lived in Kentucky and Tennessee. Meredith T. Moore, a veteran of the Mexican-American War, was married to a descendant of Ramsay. In these letters, Moore passes along information about Josiah Ramsay to Connelley. The documents from the State Historical Society of Wisconsin also discuss Ramsay and related histories such as the Nickojack Campaign. Letters from Moore are handwritten and signed by him in pencil. Connelley's and the State Historical Society's correspondence are typed in black ink. Also included is a list of surviving veterans from the Mexican-American War that Moore sent to Connelley.
