MR. EDITOR--Please allow me
to inquire for my brother. The last
time I saw him was in Coweta
Ga., in 1866; he belonged to a man
named Ben. Gray; has a mother
named Winnie Gray; her husband
was named Edmond Bridges; her
children were Sidna, Mitchell, Nicy,
Dimon, Duck, Billie and Edda.
Mitchell went off, it was said, with
a Capt. Swaisure to work on a railroad
somewhere in the North. He
left us in Georgia. He is large
built and of bright complexion.
May this be read at points from
pulpits and schools. His name is
Mitchell Gray. I would be very
happy to find him. Please address
me at Tullahoma, Coffee county,
Tenn. JNO. COPPAGE.

State
