MR. EDITOR―I wish to know the
whereabouts of my mother whom I
have not seen since the Christmas
of 1884. She left West Columbia,
Texas, on the Brazos river and
went to Houston, Texas, to meet
her daughter, Emily Watson, and
never heard of since. Her name
is Manervia Watson. Her eldest
son is named John Carter, the
youngest daughter is Hester
Homes. My name is Alcy Boon.
Any information of her please
address me at Caney, Texas, care
Rev. A. Brown, pastor in charge.
MR. EDITOR―I have found my
mother through the dear SOUTH
WESTERN. God bless you and
your paper; it resurrects the f
orgotten, the lost can be found. I
love it better than ever.

ALCY BOONE.

Caney, Teyas.
