Information wanted of my sister,
Mary Ann. She belonged to a
man named Judge Sorrell. We
were seperated about two years be-
fore emancipation and went to Tex-
as to a man named Led Betters. I
heard that she married a man named
Henry Williams. She was carried
away with a lot of more people.
She had two brothers and two sis-
ters--Bragg, and Henry, Margaret
and Jennie. Mother's name was
Jane Sorrell and belonged to a man
named Gus Thomas and was sold
to Judge Sorrell at Pine Bluff, Ark.
Any information will be thankful-
ly received by her brother, H. H.
Jones, Englis, Ark.
