Edward Gant (formerly Halestock) searching for his mother

MR. EDITOR: I wish to inquire for my mother. Her name is Octavia. She was brought from Virginia to Willianson county, Tenn., by Mr. Johnson Jordan; and I was sold from my mother by Johnson Jordan to John Gant, in Williamson county. I was two years old in 1850. My name was Edward Halestock, and I was the only child she had at that time. She requested of Jack Gant and his wife to take care of me. I was brought from Tennessee to Travis Co., Texas, by John Gant, in 1853. I now live near Round Rock, Williamson county, Texas, and go by the name of EDWARD GANT.
