John Mayo searching for his brother's wife Susan Dun and two kids

MR. EDITOR—I wish to inquire for my brother's wife and two boys. His wife's name is Susan Dun and

the two boys were Edward and Oscar. Her husband went by the name of Oscar Coopwood, and was carried off from here three years before the surrender to Texas, by his young master, Benton Coopwood. In 1865 she and her two children lived in a little town called Palatto, Chickasaw county, and went from there in the fall of the same year to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to live with her mother, and I have neither seen nor heard of them since. I hope, dear friends in Tuscaloosa, that you will sympathize with me in my search. Address me at Okolona, Miss. JOHN MAYO.
