Lost Relatives.
John Smith is desirous of locating Aurila
Smith, his sister, and Jobe Smith, his nephew,
who formerly belonged to George Long, of
West Virginia, fourteen miles above Point
Pleasant, on the great Hanawha river. Aurila
Smith was the daughter of Billy and Sallie
Smith, and when I last heard, they were in
Calhoun, Mo. Any information leading to
their discovery will be thankfully received.
JOHN SMITH.
