Mr. EDITOR: I noticed in the
SOUTHWESTERN, dated May 4th,
1882, an inquiry for some lost
friends, who are as follows: Silvey,
Tom, Ellen, Caroline, Queen, and
Henderson Buckhanon. I would
say for the information of the
inquirer, that Silvey is dead. Tom
we left in Arkansas, where they
were brought to from Tennessee.
The rest of the family are still living,
and are in the neighborhood of
Walker Station, Ford Ben County,
Texas. The inquirer will direct her
letters to Mrs. Caroline Bentley
Walker Station, Fort Bend Co, Tex.
