SEARCHING FOR RELATIVES
The postmaster of Nashville, Maj.
A. W. Wills sent to the Nashville
Globe ahis week a letter from Pass
Christian Miss. The writer of the
letter is Mrs. Victoria Hullum. The
lady in question has reasons to be-
lieve that she has in Nashville some
relatives, or that some one in and
about Nashville can assist her in find-
ing her relatives. The Globe takes
pleasure in producing the following
letter of inquiry:
"I am inquiring for relatives; of a
family of people by the name of
Young. There was a brother who has
been away from the family for some
years by the name of William Wigg
Young. He left home during the
emancipation and went to New Or-
leans on a United States ship as in-
spector. I am his daughter. Hence
I am inquiring for his people. He
left a mother, two sisters and a broth-
er, as far as I can remember. He
served in the United States Army.
I would be thankful for any informa-
tion leading up to his whereabouts
from the people of Nashville. My
name before I married was Victoria
Young. Would thank anybody for
any information leading up to rel-
atives of the parties described. Ad-
dress me Mrs. Victoria Hullum, Pass
Christian, Miss."
