Shown the Grave of His Last Brother.
GAINESVILLE, Tex., July 26. - Eight years ago in Grayson county
Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett died, leaving three children, the youngest a boy
9 years old. The family was poor and had no relatives in Texas and
the children were forced to look for homes as best they could.
The young boy came to Gainesville sick, was sent to the poor farm
and died. Nothing was ever heard of his people until a day or two
ago, when a young man appeared in County Judge Hayworth's office and inquired
for his lost brother. He gave the name and description of the boy
and was shown the little fellow's grave. He found his sister, whom
he had not seen in eight years, a few days before near Whitesboro.
