Mrs. G. W. Staples searching for her brother Martin

Dear Editor: Over twenty years ago my mother got burned and died. She had bought property in the neighborhood of the Poydras Market, in New Orleans. This property was bought in the year 1860, or '61. I had one brother named Martin. He went off after my mother died, and I have not seen him since. I was left with one Mrs. Huterson or a name of that kind. Her husband ran on the river. I did not know what he done. She treated me so cruelly I ran away from her and was raised near Kenner, La. My mother was a Brown, either Jane or Matilda, I don't know which. I know she was a Brown and that she had property. I was about seven years old when she died, I think this was in '63 or '64. My mother came from a part of Louisiana

called Attackapas. Please will you give me information about this matter. I am the wife of Rev. G. W. Staples. He is a member of the East Tennessee Conference. Address G. W. STAPLES. Abingdon, Va.
