In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.
“Billy Jarrett, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Jarrett, Nashville.

- Although I do not know whether it is this “Billy Jarrett,” I found a William Jarrett, Jr., on the 1930 U.S. census with his parents, William and Margaret Jarrett, in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee. He is reported as being 2 and 11/12 years old and born in Tennessee. [Source: 1930 U.S. census, Davidson County, Tennessee, Nashville, enumeration district (ED) 200, page 5A, dwelling 63, family 80, household of William Jarrett; digital images, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 1 January 2012); citing National Archives and Records Administration microfilm publication T626, roll 2243.]
- The name of the newspaper in which this photograph appeared and the actual date of publication are unknown.
- The relationship, if any, of Laurine Wyatt to Billy Jarrett or his parents is unknown.
