DEAR EDITOR: I desire to hear
of my father, Henry Phillips who
belonged to Dave Phillips. I left
him in Sumter county, Georgia.
He had a wife and three children
at that time. Mother was Mazy
and the children named Isiam,
Turner, Amanda, and Matlida. My
mother used to belong to Sydney
Turner. My name at this time is
Isiam Thomas. I desire also to
hear from my uncles, I do not
remember their names, but I think
one of them was named Russell,
and he belonged to Joe White.
I.W. THOMAS.
Muscogee, Indian Territory.

State

Indian Territories
Georgia
