Dear Bro. Gregory:

††††††††† A friend told me that she saw in the Macon County Times an article you had printed from a woman in Texas, who was trying to find some of her relatives.If she was Maude or Pernie Gray, Henry Grayís daughter, then I am her first cousin.I am Willie Grayís daughter.He and Henry Gray were brothers.My mother was Sarah Ellen Smith, Rev. William Henry Smithís daughter.I am now Mrs. Jack Finn.I belong to Hillsdale Baptist church, in Simpson County, Ky.If you know this womanís address, please send it to me or send her mine.

 

A sister in the Lord,

Mrs. Jack Finn.

 

(Editorís note.We have misplaced the name and address of the party referred to above.So we are publishing Mrs. Finnís letter in the hope that the Texas relative of Mrs. Finn may get her letter and write to Mrs. Finn).
