Do You Know Him ?

I desire to know the whereabouts of
my father, Carter Bray. He was with
McClellan's army in 1862. He had two
sisters and two brothers, but all are
dead.
I am the only one living of three
sons. He was born 25 miles west of
Ashland, Hanover County, Va., and was
owned by a woman, named Betsy Kimbrough.

His sister Anna Bray saw him last
on the government boat at Yorktown.
His relatives were two sisters, Dolly
and Anna and brothers, Bartlett and
Banks; two sons, Henry and Andrew,
all of whom are dead.
Any information will be thankfully
received by
ISAAC BRAY,
1t. Roseton, N. Y.

State
