Abstract The Jarman family of Seven Springs, Wayne County, N.C., included Thomas Forrest Jarman (1868-1934); his wife Lula Wooten Jarman (1872-1937); their sons, Forrest Ruel Jarman (1902-1992) and Lawrence Wooten Jarman; and Forrest Ruel Jarman's wife, Georgia Bizzell Jarman (1911- ). Ruel Jarman was interested in local history and served several terms as mayor of Seven Springs. Lawrence Wooten Jarman received an A.B. degree from the University of North Carolina in 1920. The collection includes correspondence and other papers of the Jarman and related Wooten family. Included are a few letters, bills, receipts, and deeds of Thomas Forrest and Lula Wooten Jarman, chiefly relating to land purchases and farming. In 1948, there is a letter from Forrest Ruel Jarman to the North Carolina attorney general about re-establishing town government in Seven Springs (then called White Hall), and, in 1959-1960, there are letters relating to the history of the Seven Springs post office. Also included is Ruel Jarman's school notebook, 1919-1920, and an account book with sporadic entries 1918-1989 relating to personal accounts, farm income, crop yields, and military drills. There are also a few family photographs and several of the Seven Springs Hotel and the town itself, including two showing the flood of 1924, and a negative and photocopies of a hand-drawn map of White Hall in 1912.
