Mr. Editor - I would like very much to hear from my brother, John
HENDRICKS. I was born in Virginia, and when four years old I was
carried to Newbury, South Carolina. I had a brother, William. Our
mother was Millie. When old master TOLEN died I went to Joe TOLEN and
brother John to Dr. H. TOLEN. I was carried to Mississippi and some
years after brought to Texas and have lived near Chapel Hill, Washing
county, ever since. Brother John lived in Eufaula, Barbour county, Ala.
He talked of going to Atlanta, Ga; he was a boot, shoe and Harness
maker; His wife's name was Jeanette. If any of your readers know of such
a person I shall feel thankful for information, as s through him I can
find my only child, Betsy, wife of Tom YOUNG, whose post-office was
Chappell's S. C., care of Colonel RENICKS. My husband is dead. I live
with my husband's niece, whose Husband's name is Nelson TOLEN. Please
address me, Mandy TOLEN, care of Mrs. I HOWELLS, Navasota, Grimes
county, Texas.
