Mag Brown (formerly Mag Overton) searching for her parents Riller and Dudley Overton

Mr. Editor: I ask a little space in the columns of your valuable paper to inquire for my people. I left them before the war, when I was 11 years old. I lived in Nashville, Tenn., near Neley's Bend, and was owned by Col. Overton. He was a lawyer, and owned a wood yard there. My mother's name was Riller Overton, father's name was Dudley Overton. I had a sister named Nancy, and two brothers, Galop and Aleck. I came out to Missouri with Down Bowman, a boy that Col. Overton raised. He married a lady whose father was named Sordon Banks. I am now married to Mr. J. J. Brown. I live in Presiding Elder W. H. H. Brown's District. Any information regarding my people will be gladly received. My name used to be Mag Overton. Address MAG BROWN. Arrow Rock, Saline Co., Mo.
