Peter Wilson searching for his brother James Wilson

MR. EDITOR-- Please allow me space in your paper to inquire for my brother James Wilson. He was born in Arkansas, near Arkadelphis. His father's name was James, mother Fannie Wilson. He left Arkansas in 1845 for Texas, and from there to California with a man by the name of John Wilson, his master. His fellow servant, who went with him, was killed by robbers. My wife was named Susan Wilson. Some have told us that he went to Australia during the war. There were four brothers of us when he left us in Arkansas, Peter, Barnet, Samuel and Green Wilson. Please read this in your pulpits. Address Peter Wilson, Smithland, Clark county, Ark.
