J. W. Davis (formerly Major) searching for his mother Lilly Mitchell and several siblings

DEAR EDITOR ---- My name at the
commencement of the war was
Major belonging to Henry Mitchell,
who lived in Martin county, North
Carolina. My mother was named
Lilly Mitchell and one sister named
Lempy, another named Easter, all
of whom lived in Martin county,
North Carolina. One brother
whose name was Isaiah, and
another brother named Nathan, and
another named Handy. Our sister
died long before the war named
Mary. I desire if any of the above
kindred are living anywhere in the
United States to address the
undersigned at McAlmon Station,
Pulaski county, Arkansas. I left
North Carolina sometime during
the war, I think during the year
1862. J. W. DAVIS
January 13th, 1882
