Mr. Editor - I wish to inquire
for my relatives; my mother's name was
Millie Limas, father Jack
Limas. At the time I left my sister's
name was Louisa Trip
Eliza Limas, but she has been sold
since then. My brother was named
Randall; he belonged to Major
Williams; my youngest brother
was Virgil; I do not know the man
that bought him. My mother,
father and youngest sister were
brought to Texas; my youngest sister
was named Isabella Readers.
Please assist me to find my people.
I used to belong to a man by the
name of St. John Etters. He sold
me to Twensley, who brought me
to Texas. Any information will be
gladly received. Address me at
Waco, Texas, in care of S. Marx.
My name is now Catherine Webster.
