Biographical Note
Roane Fleming and Charles Ferriday Byrnes were members of Natchez families, prominent in local business and civic affairs. Roane, born in 1890, was the daughter of James Stockman Fleming (1856-1932), a banker, and Anna Metcalfe Fleming (1861-1936), a school teacher.1 James and Anna Fleming also had a son, James Jr. (1892-1960). James, a Natchez attorney, attended the University of Virginia School of Law and had served in the U. S. military in World War I. In 1917 Roane Fleming married Ferriday Byrnes, and they moved into the Metcalf e home, Ravenna, a well--known Natchez house built in the 1830s. Ferriday, who was also born in Natchez in 1890, was a graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law and a practicing attorney in Natchez. Roane and Ferriday had no children. Ferriday died in 1956 and Roane died in 1970.
As a girl, Roane Fleming attended Stanton College in Natchez. An aspiring writer, Roane primarily wrote children's stories, two of which were published in St. Nicholas (1928) Child Life (1930). Roane was a charter member of the Natchez Garden Club and participated in the city's first Pilgrimage. She also ran a 1600-acre plantation which she inherited from her father in Beverley, Mississippi; and in 1948 the tenants at Beverley began an annual appreciation day for her. Roane was also concerned about the state of race relations in Natchez. The collection contains a significant number of essays and speeches written by Roane on the topic of racial harmony. She also contributed to the rebuilding of several African--American churches burned by white extremists in Mississippi during the turbulence of the 1960s. Roane Fleming Byrnes is most well--known for efforts towards establishing the Natchez Trace Parkway. She worked diligently as president of the Natchez Trace Association for over twenty--five years and her work with the N. T. A. earned her the title "Queen of the Parkway."
