There is a fortune awaiting W. H. Stern, or his legal heirs, in Meridian, Tex. Some time ago Ordinary of Sumter county received a communication from Meridian asking for information of Stern or his representatives. Messrs. Carruth & Estes, attorneys at Meridian, say in their letter: “Samuel Calhoun came to Texas from some county in Alabama, at an early day. His daughter, Mary, married one Paul Mersfelder in Walker county Texas, about the year 1848. Mersfelder died in 1851, and the next year after his death she married Cyrus Perry, who also died within a few months after their marriage. Some time after Perry’s death, Mrs. Mary Perry, formerly Mrs. Mary Mersfelder, formerly Mary Calhoun, went to Georgia, where she married one W.H. Sterns, of Sterns, who is said to have been a widower with several children who came with her to Texas, where they soon separated, and Sterns is supposed to have returned to Georgia, and has not since been heard from in this country. Mrs. Sterns died about the year 1855. For his interest here, to benefit either him or ourselves, it is necessary for us to hear from him or his heirs at an early date.
