MR. EDITOR:--I wish to inquire
about my father, sister and brother.
I have not heard from them
in 25 years. Sister Eliza was sold
by Aleck Brown, in Louisiana;
brother Pendleton was carried to
New Orleans by Jim Just. Father
was Land Callery, and was carried
out of the State. We were separated
from father in eastern Texas.
Mother was called Minnie Callery,
Oldest sister was Emeline, next
Eliza, next Harriet, next Sarah
Jane, Dora and Elsie; brothers
were Pendleton and Bluford.
We were living in Limeston county,
Texas, except those inquired for.
Address me in Mexia.
SARA JANE FARRIS.

State

Texas
Louisiana
