LOST RELATIVES.
I wish to inquire for my lost relatives whom
I have not seen since I was ten years old. I
was born in Paris, Henry county Tennessee.
My father's name was Stephe Wright, and be-
longed to Bill Wright.--my father died. My
mother's name was Goodly, sisters Evaline and
Emma, brother Nelson, nicknamed Tobe
and myself belonged to Matthew Russell.
When Matthew Russell died, mother sisters
and brothers were sold to Gofer Cox and
moved to Texas. Mrs. Russell bought me
Any information to either will be thankfully
received by Sam Russell, Searcy, Ark., White
county.
