Thomas H. Brown searching for his mother Amanda and brother Walter

Of my people whom I left in the year of 1864.
My mother and oldest brother moved to
St. Louis, Mo., and left me in Helena, Arkan-
sas with my aunt Carolina, whom I left in
1864, and followed the 13th Illinois Infantry
until they were mustered out and came to
Illinois with them. My mother's first name
is Amanda, and my brother's first name is
Walter. I had another brother by the name
of Augustus whom we left in Tennessee.
My name is Thomas Brown, I was named
after my owner. All of the divines will con-
fer a great favor upon me by making diligent
inquiries for the whereabouts of the hereto-
fore named persons.
Address Thomas H. Brown. Box 113,
Vincennes, Ind.
