Timothy Bestick Seeking Brother Edward

This is my favorite discovery from my research trip to Salt Lake City last month. It is an ad in the New Orleans Times-Picayune dated August 11, 1883. The ad was placed by my ancestor, Timothy Bestick, seeking information about his brother Edward. Timothy lived in Newark, NJ and must have lost touch with his brother before Edward died in 1860.
