Elizabeth Henderson searching for her mother Jane Burntint and six siblings

MR. EDITOR: I wish to inquire for my mother and six children. Oldest brother was Amos Lacey. I left him and sister Mary in Houston county, Texas. Mother had four children with her. George, Ellen, Robert and James. Mother was Jane Burtint. Brother Amos' wife had two sons by a previous marriage Harvey and Edmond. Brother Amos had three girls - Ann, Virginia and Catherine. They belonged to Bill Long, on Brazos river, one mile from Waco. Bill Barrett bought me from Bill Long in March, 1853. Last owner was George Merrit, father was Robin Lacy. Mother's second husband was George, and he was killed by the Indians while in the field plowing. She had a wen on her right eye. Address me at Resor Station, La., care of Jack Henderson. ELIZABETH HENDERSON.
