MR. EDITOR - I wish informa-
tion about my mother and sister.
I was taken from my people long
before the war, between Rome and
Walker, Georgia. We all be-
longed to Mr. Young, and his son
James Young brought me out to
Mississippi where I now live. My
mother's name is Milly Ann,
and sister's Rosetta and Ownia, brother
Charles Young. My name was
Sebbia Young, but my marriage
name is now Sebbia McColoach.
Any information of my relations
will be thankfully received. Ad-
dress me at Greenwood, Miss., in
care of Rev. B. L. Crump.
