Summary
Caesar Rodney (1728-1784), his brother Thomas Rodney (1744-1811) and Thomas Rodney's son Caesar A. (Caesar Augustus) Rodney (1772-1824) were prominent American politicians and statesmen from Kent County, Delaware. The Rodney family papers, dating 1759-1823, comprise the papers of Caesar Rodney and letters received by Thomas Rodney and Caesar A. Rodney, documenting their professional and personal lives. Caesar Rodney papers, 1759-1781, consist of correspondence and other materials reflecting his militia and government responsibilities during the American Revolution, as well as personal and business matters. Letters to Thomas Rodney, 1776-1804, consist of personal letters from Caesar A. Rodney, nephew Caesar R. Wilson, and John Dickinson, and a letter regarding a legal matter from Thomas Collins. Letters to Caesar A. Rodney, 1795-1823, concern his legal, business and political affairs, and his missions to South America; there is some personal correspondence from John Dickinson, James Barron, and others.
