George W. Lenox looking for his mother, sister, and brother

Dear Editor -- I wish to inquire
for my kinfolks, mother, sister and
brother. The last time I saw
them was 1861. They belonged
to Mrs. Harris the widow of Mr.
John Harris in Lebanon, Mo.
Mothers name is Christenia. She
was married but I did not know her
husband's name, as oldest brother
Frank and I belonged to Mr. John
T. Smith. I heard that Frank went
to St. Louis and joined the army
and died there. One of my younger
brothers is Andrew Jackson. My
other brother and sisters names
I have forgotten. I only passed
through there and saw them once.
I have written letters but could not
hear from them. I heard that they
were sent to Texas, but I don't
know where. I belonged to Mr.
John T. Smith, at that time, and I
went by the name of George Smith.

George W. Lenox

Little Rock, Ark.
