Jarrett Family (1864)

The Jarrett family lived in North Carolina. W.R. Mobley and John Jarrett, brothers-in-law, apparently enlisted in either Virginia or North Carolina regiments, serving in Virginia. In one letter from this collection, W.R. Mobley writes to his brother and sister in North Carolina while passing through Staunton. John Jarrett writes a series of letters to his wife, Mary Mobley Jarrett, from the hospital in Staunton.
