Thomas Sheals searching for his mother Rose Sheals and his wife Amanda Sample

I would like to find some of my relatives; my
mother, Rose Sheals, went to Ben Sheals at or
near Moplis, Ala. Chas., Julia Sheals and I
went to John Sheals near a little town called
Industry, Tex. I left three cousins in Texas by
the names of Lace, Bob, David and Abram
Sheals; at John Sheals' death we went to his
children. York Catling was their guardian un
til [until] their mother married John Holman. after
which Ben Sheals, their uncle, came and took
us away. I married Amanda Sample, a bright
mulatto girl. We had no children, but she was
about to become a mother. When I left I took
a horse and mule and went to Mexico; since
that time I have wrote but could find no trace
of them. I am anxious to find my wife. Any
informotion will be thankfully received by
Thomas Sheals, 366 1/2 Eldorado street Stockton,
Cal. (Alabama & Texas papers please copy.)
