DEAR EDITOR —I wish to inquire
for my brother who left Fairfield
District, South Carolina, about
1865, with the Yankees and said he
was going to Texas to look for us.
I have never heard a word from
him since. His name is Jim Aiken;
his mother's Catherine Aiken ;
father's James McVea. He may
go by father's name. Robert Mc-
Vea [McVea], our old master, moved from
Fairfield District, South Carolina,
to Texas, and brought all of the
McVea family with him. Father
had Charlotte Aiken for a wife at
the time and Jim was their son.
Please address me at Waelder,
Gonzales Co., Texas.
RICHARD A. MCVEA.
