MR. EDITOR--I desire to inquire
for my father who left me in 1858
when I was a little boy. We then
lived in Hancock county, Ga. My
father went to Texas where he now
resides. I am married and have
four children. I live in Cypremort,
St. Mary's parish, and should
be addressed at Landon, Sorrel
Station, La. My father is called
James Murray, but I go by the
name of Sydney Battle.

State

Louisiana
Georgia
