B. J. Houston searching for his mother Jane McKinan and his siblings

DEAR EDITOR—I wish to inquire
for my relations, whom I left in
1850, in Attala county, Miss. I left
mother with Nelson McKinan. My
oldest sister's name was Emily. I
was too young to remember the
balance. My youngest sister's
name was Emma. I left her with
my mother. My mother's name
was Jane McKinan. My oldest
brother was named Mark, and the
youngest Harris. I left them in
Holmes county, Miss., and came to
Texas with Tom Allen, a son-in-law
of Nellie McKinan. I think my
people are at Memphis, Tenn. Ad-
dress [Address] me at Pennington, Trinity
Co., Texas. B. J. HOUSTON.
