Brinton Family Collection
Description
The Brinton Family Collection contains genealogy, estate records, receipts, school workbooks, correspondence, farm records, tax records, bank records, wedding and funeral announcements, invitations, visiting cards, and postcards.
Admin/Biographical History
The Brintons were a prosperous family, owned farms and mills, and participated in other business ventures. They were of English heritage and members of the Quakers, or Society of Friends. In order to escape religious persecution in England, William Brinton purchased 200 acres in Birmingham Twp., Pennsylvania in 1684. His descendants eventually moved further west to eastern Lancaster County.1
Cyrus Brinton (1830-1917), the fourth of six children, was the son of Samuel and Lydia P. Jackson Brinton. In 1813, Samuel purchased 200 acres of land in Christiana (land that was later bounded by the Christiana Machine Shop on the south, Pine St. on the west, Sadsbury Ave. on the north, and Rte. 41 on the east). The land was not ideal for farming, but the property was picturesque and the farm was successful. Cyrus married Rebecca Whitson and they farmed on his father's property for about ten years. At that time they purchased a farm and mill on the road from Cooperville to the Noble Road. The original woolen mill was later turned into a grist mill, then a creamery. Cyrus and Rebecca had five children: Francis, Thomas Luther, William Haslam, Anne Haslam, and Martha Alice.2

Nathan Reist Papers, 1877-1907
Description
This collection contains documents related to Nathan Reist, a teacher, amateur photographer, and Lititz resident. These documents cover a period of roughly thirty years-from 1877 to at least 1907-and the majority concern his teaching career. Students' practice ledgers, writing books, and art evince the variety of classes taught by Reist. A ledger records the activities of a Teachers' Natural Science Club and a leaflet advertises a bee judged by Reist. The few remaining items are a mix of ephemera and advertisements.
Admin/Biographical History
Nathan Reist was a teacher and amateur photographer who lived and taught in Warwick Township and Lititz.
