Durant Golden seeking his brother William Linyer Jones

MR. EDITOR--I wish to inquire
for my brother, whom I have not
heard from since 1879; at that time
he was in Florida, a preacher of
the A.M.E. Church. He told me
in his last letter not to write to
him for he would not be there.
His old master's name was Edward
E. S. Jones; his name was William
Linyer Jones, but when he
addressed me he always signed his
name W. L. Jones, but in the last
letter he told me to sign his name
W. L. G. Jones, in order that he
might have the name of his father,
in order that he should not miss
the letter. Father and mother
were named Durant and Suky
Jones; the children were named
Anthony, Flora, Durant, Tibby,
William Linyer and John Jefferson.
Address me, Durant Golden, at
Bell Prairie, Miss.
