Biographical/Historical:     Zabud Fletcher was born in Georgia on May 20, 1807.  He was the son of John Fletcher (1765-1860), a Georgia Militia captain and state legislator.  The Fletcher family moved to Gadsden County, Florida in 1825.  Zabud Fletcher married Sarah Ann Monroe, the orphaned niece of Dr. Malcolm Nicholson, probably between 1836 and 1838.  Their children were Malcolm Nicholson, Susanna, John, Sarah, and William.
Summary:     The collection contains correspondence (1835-1870) of the Zabud Fletcher family of China Hill, Gadsden County, Florida.  The bulk of the collection is from the Civil War era, 1861-1865.  Although most of these materials are general in nature, some of the letters deal with two of Zabud Fletcher's sons, Malcolm and John, who served in the war.  The 1830's correspondence concerns Sarah Ann Monroe, the future Mrs. Zabud Fletcher.  The collection also includes materials relating to extended Fletcher family, as well as some miscellaneous poems and photographs.
