MR. EDITOR--Allow me to in-
quire [inquire] for my children whom I left
in Louisiana, at Flat Lake. We
lived with a man in the time of
slavery by the name of Jesse Pax-
ton [Paxton]. He sold me to Erwin Wil-
liams [Williams]. My three children were a
son, Davie, two daughters, Maria
and Cathrine. I was called Kitty
Paxton, but am now Kitty Presnell.
I heard that they were living near
Little Rock, Ark., over the river.
Write to Navasota, Grimes county,
Texas. KITTY PRESNELL.
