MR. EDITOR: - I want to find my people. They left me in Russell county, Ala., about twenty-five years ago. They went to Missis-sippi. They belonged to Robt. McKissick. My father was named Peter and mother Mattie Sealy. Their oldest boy was named Willis; my brothers were name Aaron, Austin and Isom. Our uncle was named Simon; our grandmother Mary. Address me at Centre Point, Ark. I have changed my name from McKissick to Brooks.

WILLIS BROOKS.
