Who Knows Him?

I would be glad to know the where-
abouts of George Smith. He was
born in Pittsylvania Co., near Chat-
ham, Va., about 1853. His father's
name was Benny Smith, a carpenter
by trade. His nick-name was Geo,
Frye, and sometimes he was called
Biler for short. He left his mother,
Mrs. Lucinda Poindexter, at Frias
Point, Miss., and went to New Or-
leans, with a man driving a herd of
horses, and has not been heard from
since directly. This was about 23
years ago. Any information lead-
ing to his whereabouts, will be
thankfully received and liberally re-
warded by notifying W. Anthony
Cole, Jr., Keysville, Va., Lock Box,
203.
New York, Louisiana and Missis-
sippi papers please copy.
