Do You Know Them ?

I have somewhere in Virginia two
brothers and one sister. Their names
are Nick Sanders, Nussau Sanders and
Sookie Toles. My brother Uriah and I
were sold from Lancaster County
about 45 years ago at the sale of old
Mrs. Polly Cavern. My father, Abraham
Sanders belonged to Joseph C
Cavern, and after his death his wife
sold us out. I have an aunt; her name
is Matilda Woods and a friend Sam
Loney and his family.
He knew my father, Abraham Sanders,
he lived next door to us.
Any one that knows anything about
any of the above named parties will
confer a great favor by writing me.
Yours respectfully.
RACHEL ROGERS,
Scranton, Jackson County, Miss.
