I wrote you sometime ago a hasty letter in answer to one received & dated 7th Octo 1835. I then was upon the eve of starting for the upper part of South Carolina on a visit, I paid that visit and returned in about two weeks, If I am not mistaken I believe I promised that on my return I would write you, which promise I would have complied with, but found on my return that Brother Robert with whom I left your letter, by his request, had forwarded it to my Brother Washington at Macon in this state, and just two days ago he returned it to me.
The History which you have given us of our family, is to us, a valuable document, and one which we will preserve with great care. You did, however, make an omission in tracing the Genealogy, You say "our Uncle George had three children, Jacob who resides in Frederick County, and George who is Cashier of the Bank at Mobile" and of the other you say nothing, neither as to who he was or where he lived. You say "only three of the Brothers married, David, George and William," but you do not say what ever became of the other Brothers, now I think it very probable that John and Samuel married also, as the Poes of whom I spoke as having met with in Augusta--bore their names and were very likely descended from them, probably their Sons. I recollect distinctly, they spoke of Uncles living, I think, in Tennessee, who they said were very old, and they also said that our names were family names with them.
