Eliza Holmes seeking information about her husband Frank Holmes and son Jas. Monroe Holmes

my husband and son. We parted
at Richmond, Va., in 1860. My
son's name was Jas. Monroe Holmes;
my husband's name was Frank
Holmes. My son was sold in Rich-
mond, Va. I don't know where
they carried him to. My husband
was not sold; I left him in Rich-
mond, Va. and I and five children,
Henry, Gabriel, Charles, Dortha
and Jacob were sold to a trader who
lived in Texas. I am now old, and
don't think that I shall be here long
and would like to see them before I
die. Any information concerning
them will be thankfully received by
Eliza Holmes, Flatonia, Fayette
Co., Texas.
