J. R. M. DuBerry was born in Warren County, N.C. in 1816. He served as a captain in a Mississippi regiment during the Civil War. Part of which time he was stationed at Camp Moore, Hickman County, Ky. In 1880 he was a census taker for Calhoun County, Ms. and in 1891 was elected mayor of Pittsboro, Ms.These are the papers of J. R. M. DuBerry and his family of Pittsboro, Mississippi. Apart from one photograph and one recruiting poster, all of the papers are letters. The letters are from two distinct periods; May, 1861 to September, 1862 and from 1878-1893. The earlier letters comprise the bulk of the collection. Most of these are from friends and relatives in Mississippi to Martha DuBerry, wife of Captain J. R. M. DuBerry. There are four letters from Mrs. DuBerry to her husband stationed at Camp Moore (near Columbus, Hickman County, Kentucky) and one from DuBerry to his wife. Captain DuBerry's letter predicts a federal offensive in his sector.Other letters give views of the war on the Confederate home front and women's thoughts of the war such as the righteousness of the southern cause. The letters often deal with family and personal feelings, concerns of illnesses, economic conditions, and desire for peace. The later letters (1878- 1893) are to the DuBerrys from their sons, John and William, from various places in Mississippi. This correspondence addresses political issues and employment issues including wages, boarding conditions and job satisfaction.Arranged chronologically.DuBerry, J. R.
