Mrs. Lilly Dotson searching for the family of her stepfather Isam Carlton (formerly Isam Christian)

DEAR EDITOR—I wish to inquire for my step-father, mother, sister, and brother. Mother's name was Juda Borrel, and step-father was Richard Burrel. He left his mother in Virginia in 1847, he then a eleven year old boy. His step-father used to belong to Richard Cook. His mother used to belong to a man by the name of James Odel, who sold her to Leon Slater. His name was then Isam Christian and he had a brother Emanuel Christian, but now he goes by the name of Isam Carlton. His sister belonged to John Crump. Her name was Melvina, and her husband was Tom. She lived with John Crump, five miles from his mother at New Kent Court House, Va. His mother's sister was Nancy Burrel. She belonged to Hal Vaiten. His aunt was the mother of five children, Letitia, Hannah, Anna, Eliza Octana; the boy, he does not remember his name. I write for my step-father to inquire for his relations. Should any of his people see this they will please address him at Frelsburg, Texas. He now goes by the name of Isam Carlton. MRS. LILLY DOTSON.
