MR. EDITOR:--My mother July Henry lived in Hamilton county, Tennessee, not Texas, as printed May 3. J.T. HENRY. Dayton, Tenn. WEIMER, TEXAS, 1883.
DEAR EDITOR:--I desire to inquire for my mother's people. Most of them are perhaps in Virgina or Maryland. She was born as near as she can remember in Halford county, Maryland, near a small town called Bladensburg. Her name was July Farrlow, her mother was Giser, a sister Fanny and a brother John. All belonged to widow Farrow. The widow had a son, Malshier. Lizzie was sold about 1840 to a family near Bladensburgh; July was sold to a trader, John Blackwell, and taken to South Carolina, A few years later she passed to Georgia; she now lives in Hamilton county, Texas. Her name is now July Henry. Address me at Dayton, Tenn. J.T. HENRY.
