My Dear Cousin
I cannot express the
joy your kind letter gave me
as I never knew I had any
I received it this morning
and I always though [thought?] that my
friends were all dead.
A year or two ago I wrote to
the Chief of Police there to try and
find Grace [McHeney?] who was
married to Porter and I got
word that Porter and her was both
dead and he did not know
what had become of the family
I am James Brown's daughter
my mother was Mary Jane Scott
my brother James Brown is still
living and well he lives out a
few miles in the country
I would like very much
to hear from you and let me
know how long grandmother
is dead and if your mother
is living yet and all particulars
about yourself and family
My father died in 1855 and
mother died in 1857 when I
was small. I am married
and has no family, my husbands
name is William Flemming.
I having been trying for
some time to find about the
death of my aunt Jane Brown
and when she died and where
she died as mother always
told me she would surely leave
me something. I hope to hear
from you soon again and
I will write you a long
letter next time.
I must now bid you good
bye and would like very
much to see you
Elizabeth Flemming
