J. H. Baker searching for his maternal grandfather

MR. EDITOR: --I desire to inquire
for my mother's father, who, per-
haps [perhaps] is in Mississippi. He was
born in Williamson county, Tenn.
Before the war his name was
George Woods. He had a sister
Dicey Woods, and a brother Ander-
son [Anderson] Woods. He belonged to John-
son [Johnson] Woods, when he was sold and
carried to Mississippi. We have
been here eight or nine years. I
heard from him a year or two after
he returned to Mississippi, near
Vicksburg. He was a member and
a faithful class leader of the Meth-
odist [Methodist] Church. His brothers Ander-
son [Anderson] and Dicey are dead. He mar-
ried [married] Mary Gentry, daughter of
Edmond Ellison, and had three
children--Lucy, Edmund and Win-
nie [Winnie]. My mother was Lucy Baker.
Address me at Cuney Springs,
Marshall county, Tennessee.
