G. W. Mayman searching for his uncle Philip Rea

I have not yet found my uncle, and through your most interesting paper I wish to make further inquiry for him. He left Rae's plantation two years before the the civil war closed; at that time he went by the name of Philip Rea. His mother and father went by the name of Alzaro Rea and Joe Rea. He had only one sister; her name was Sarah Ann Rea; she married Nelson Houston, but his name has since been changed to Hayman. They are my mother and father. He came to Arkansas in 1857 with Thomas Oliver, and lived in Columbia county, near Mathew's store, on Crockett Creek, adjoining Anderson Smith's plantation. His mother and father came along two years after he died. he belonged to Cornelius Rea, and the overseer's name was Anderson Bursey. Pastors and friends, I desire your help in finding my uncle. Any information concerning him will be very gratefully received. Address G. W. Mayman, Wiley University, Marshall, Texas.
