DEAR EDITOR:--I wish to inquire for my father, two sisters and two brothers. Father left me on the Neuces river, and last I heard of him he was sold in New Orleans. His name was Sam Donelson; sisters were Hettie and Angeline Donelson. Hettie was the oldest. Brothers were Greene and Richard. Brother Greene was with his young mistress, who married John Bodie, who at that time was living at Memphis Tenn. My brother, who was the babe at that time, was with father and two sisters when last heard from. Address me at Rossville, Atascosa county, Texas.
JEFF GREENE.
