HANNAH JAMES - Information Wanted.

In the year 1862 I left my mother at Peach Orchard Bluff, Arkansas, and have been trying to find her whereabouts, but as yet have failed; her name was Hannah James, one of Edward James' slaves. Any information of her will be gratefully accepted by her son, HORACE JOHNSON,
Kokomo, Indiana.
