MR. EDITOR--I wish to inquire
for my sister Eveline. My brother
was taken from her in Montgomery.
She belonged to a man named Wm.
Lipscomb, but when last heard
from she was living with a Mr.
Brassfield, who married our young
Miss Jane. Myself and our brother
Thomas belonged to Mr. William
Edings, with whom we came to
Texas. When I last heard from
sister Eveline she was the mother
of four children; her husband is or
was named Isaac, and they belonged
to Mr. Brassfield. They all moved
to some part of Mississippi. Our
mother was named Charlott. There
were four children of us: Sophie,
Thomas, Eveline and Stephen. We
have relatives in Greene county,
Alabama, near Pinhook, named
Jupiter, Easter and Dick, belong-
ing to McMaster, but I think Eas-
ter went to Mr. Thomas Cunard.
My dear Editor if you can find them
for me I do believe the M. E. Church
would spread her wings still wider
over the long lost friends of the
South. My name in slave times
was Sophie Eddings. Address me,
Sophie Johnson, in care of Rev. T.
J. Smith, Giddings, Lee county,
Texas.
