Most of the correspondence is from Mary Jones, primarily to her son Cromwell Anson Jones. These letters date between 1866 and 1882. The letters discuss local affairs and Mary Jones' life, as well as family members (Samuel Edward and Sallie S.) and friends. Many of the letters relate to problems with land claims and taxes on lands held by Mary Jones following the death of her husband.
