Wanted, Tidings of a Widow’s Only Son.

A destitute widow, Mrs. R. C. Monroe, whose post office is “Stephens Store, Calloway county, Missouri,” is very anxious to hear some tidings of her son, James Richard Monroe.  A carpenter by trade, who left her home in company with two sons of Judge Bright to join Price’s army on the 20th of October, 1864.  She has not heard from him since, but has heard that some young Missourians living in Texas were shipwrecked near Charleston, S. C., and that one of them named Monroe who said his home was in Missouri had come from Charleston to Bowling Green, Kentucky.  Any person who can give her information in regard to her son will confer a great favor upon an anxious mother by writing to Mrs. R. C. Monroe, “Stephens Store, Calloway county, Missouri.”  Southern papers are requested to copy. – Louisville Courier.
