DEAR EDITOR—I have a lost daughter named Edna Jerrett. She went away with Dr. J. Robinson the last year of the war. When last heard from she was in Browns- ville [Brownsville], Jackson county, Ala. Her father's name is Jerry Chalmers. When she went off I belonged to the same family of Jerretts. I went off with Dr. Jerome Summerfield Jerrett. He married one Miss Lydia Casing. I then lived seven miles from Holly Springs, Marshall county, Miss. My daughter had sisters, Alice and Henrietta. All lived with the same family. Their grandmother's name was Nelly Jer- rett [Jerrett]. The father of these Jerretts was a Methodist preacher. I came to Texas before the close of the war. DARTHULIA MINOR, Bryan, Brazos Co., Texas.
