MR. EDITOR-I desire to make
inquiry about my father's relatives.
Mother was named Sarah and be-
longed to Joe Brown, and he sold
her, but I don't know to whom, in
Newburn, Alabama. My father's
name was Augustus, belonged to
Joe Brown, the same man my grand
mother first belonged to. Her other
sons were Nelson and Andrew, her
daughters were Georgianna, Susan
and others whose names I do not
know. Father's mother was brought
from Virginia when he was a baby in
her arms. The last I heard from
them was in 1869, and they were
then living in Greene county, Ala.,
and we were living in Mobile, Ala.
We left there in 1870 and came to
Oktibbeha county, Miss.-father,
mother, sister and myself. Father
died Aug. 7, 1873, aged 44 years.
At that time I was ten years old
and my sister four. Any informa-
tion concerning their whereabouts
would be most thankfully received.
My mother, sister and myself live
together about two miles north of
the old turnpike. Address me at
Oktoe, Miss.
