Ann Curry searching for her brother Joseph Wilson

MR. EDITOR -- I wish to inquire for my brother; his name is Joseph Wilson. There were five children, three sisters and two brothers of us. Amanda was the oldest, and I next; Henrietta next to me, she has a daughter named Alice; Joseph is next; Jerry is the baby, he belonged to a man named Tom Anderson. Our father was named Nelson Wilson, and mother's name was Elnora. We all belonged to Mr. Wilson except Jerry, and lived at Griffin, Spaulding county, Ga., until recently. Bro. Joseph left us in 1866, with a lot of hands for Cuba or some foreign port, and I have not seen or heard from him since, except in Birmingham, Ala., some one told me they thought he was there. I was cooking for old Judge Wright at the time Joseph left us. Sister Amanda married a man named Frank Sims Any information concerning Joseph will be thankfully received. Address Ann Curry, in care of Rev. J. T. Henry, Missionary Ridge or Amnicola, Tenn.
