Later on he relumed to his old home in Cin- l cinnnti, but he failed to find his only sister, who was 12 years old when he went away, so he started out without money and 'vithout a clue to find her. Although fifty years have passed, land he hns no clue snve that his sis ter's name is Marie Elizabeth Row lands, he is devoting his remaining years to the search.
