LOOKING FOR LOST RELATIVE.
St. Louis, Mo.
To Editor Nashville Globe:
I am inquiring about a brother of
mine, or I will say a half-brother, by
the name of William Boyd. I am his
half-sister, and if you know any
Boyds among your friends and ac-
quaintances would you be so pleased
as to inquire? He is the son of Brit-
ton Boyd. His mother's name was
Mary Boyd. I have a sister named
Nancy and also a sister named Caro-
line. I was brought from Logan
County when I was five years old. I
don't know you, but a friend of yours,
by the name of Mrs. Hall, told me to
write to you, and maybe you could
give a little information. If so, it will
be thankfully received. A sister who
is in Martinville, Ky., told me that she
thought he was in Nashville, Tenn.
Please answer soon, and oblige
MRS JANE HANFORD.
1016 North Jefferson avenue, St.
Louis, Mo.
