Biographical/Historical Note

James Rhind married Mary Gardener (1815-1851); their children included Colden Rhind (1849-1911) and Margeret Rhind (born 1838). Margeret married William Stokes and their children included Sarah Gardner Stokes (born 1860) and James Rhind Stokes (1865-1929). The Rhind family resided in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia.

Margeret and William both lived through the Civil War, and their correspondence reflects the time period and the conflict experience.
