Series 4. Ley Family Material
Mixed Materials Box: 151856-1956, undated
Scope and Contents

This series includes correspondence, financial material, photographs, printed material, ephemera, and other materials pertaining to the Ley family and descendants. Christian S. Ley (ca. 1825-1899) and his son William C. Ley (ca. 1865-1941) owned a boarding house or campground on the Cheat River at Laurel Iron Works/Uneva in the 1880s-1890s. In 1891, Christian Ley's daughter, Lillie C. Ley (ca. 1861-1942), married George W. Robison/Robinson (ca. 1855-1923). In 1895, the couple built Mont Chateau Hotel on the Cheat River at Uneva, and also resided at or near Cheat Haven, PA. They had a daughter, Mrs. Hugh M. Blosser (nee Eleanor Mary Robison, born ca. 1896). More on the history of Lillie and the hotel can be found in box 15, folder 1. Additional material can be found in A&M 3328, the Ley, Robison, and Blosser Family Papers.

The Ley correspondence includes mostly requests for accommodations. The Robison/Robinson correspondence includes requests for accommodation (the location is called Robinson House, Robinson Hotel, and Mont Chateau) and financial matters. Blosser papers include photographs, printed material, and correspondence regarding Blosser Boat Docks and Mont Chateau.

The album material in box 15, folder 19 includes material related to the Cheat River and George Robison/Robinson, as well as local history.
