Abstract:

This collection contains letters and family history information for this southeastern Alabama family.

Scope and Contents note

This collection contains letters written to and from members of the Pickett family for over one hundred years. Most of the early letters, particularly the Civil War era ones, are written by the women of the family; Sallie, Cassie, Mary and others. The 20th century letters are all to Wingate Pickett Jr. in Chillicothe, Livingston County, Missouri, most of them from his mother in Union Springs, Bullock County, Alabama.

There are also some family history papers and other documents, including a portion of The Southern Literary Messneger (pages 199-256, no date given), a program card from a 1903 Montgomery Greys annual ball, an obituary for Mr. Eddie Ross Pickett (died March 5, 1994) and a tribute to Margaret Pickett (March 2, 1994; died January 4, 1994), and a hand-drawn family tree.
