The collection consists chiefly of correspondence, financial and legal papers, writings, volumes, and pictures of the Quitman and Lovell families. John A. Quitman's political and military activities are documented, including his participation in the state legislature, his expedition to Texas to fight in its struggle with Mexico, and his service as brigadier-general in the Mexican War. Also documented are plantation affairs and accounts with commission merchants in New Orleans for cotton grown at Monmouth and Palmyra plantations. Included is documentation of a dispute, 1841-1843, between Henry Turner and a slave trader, Rice C. Ballard, over money owed by Turner to Ballard and slaves purchased in 1836 by Turner that he claimed were in poor health and older than the trader had led him to believe. Much of the correspondence deals with family and personal matters, and there are frequent letters from the Quitmans' relatives in Rhinebeck, N.Y., and Philadelphia, Pa., and from Eliza's mother and brothers. Volumes include plantation records with slave lists, childhood diaries, and account books. Pictures are chiefly photographs of Quitman family members and their homes. Prominent family members included John A. Quitman (1799-1858), lawyer, planter, state legislator, governor, congressman, and United States Army officer; his wife, Eliza (Turner) Quitman (1810-1859); their daughter, Louisa (Quitman) Lovell Chadbourne (1826-1884); their daughter, T. Antonia (Quitman) Lovell (fl. 1820s-1900); Antonia's husband, William Storrow Lovell (1829-1900); Antonia's son, John Quitman Lovell (b. 1859); Antonia's daughter, Rose Duncan Lovell (b. 1866) and Eliza Quitman's brothers, Fielding (d. 1841) and Henry Turner
