Henry Brown (formerly John Wesley Gale) searching for his sisters Martha, Ellen, and Melvina

MR. EDITOR -- I want to find my
sisters, Martha, Ellen and Melvina
Bingham. We belonged to Mrs.
Bingham in Middle Tennessee; I
left them at the old home place on
the Mt. Pleasant Pike, in Murray
county. Old mistress had five
girls; Mary married Mr. Thomas
Armstrong, he lived in Lafayette,
near Oxford, Miss., at College Hill.
I belonged to Laura, she married
Mr. William Gale, and lived at
Liverpool, Miss., not far from
Yazoo City. Sarah married Mr.
Liverstine, and lived near Gre-
nada [Grenada], Miss.; they had my sister
Nancy with them. The youngest
girl was named Margaret Bingham
and I do not know if she married.
My father belonged to Mr. Cald-
well [Caldwell]; my mother was named Lucy.
I have one brother and sister dead,
named Rufus and Alice, who died
in Mansfield. I have not seen
them since the war. I was John
Wesley Gale, but am now Henry
Brown. Address me at Rialton
Tipton county, Tenn.
