MR. EDITOR--I wish to inquire for my mother's people. Her name was Emsie Smith. she was sold from Lexington, Kentucky, when very small girl, aged 10 or 12 years I heard that uncle John Smith lived in St. Louis, Missouri; and uncle Fred Smith was in Baltimore with a doctor, and mother was in Louisiana. I also desire to hear from father's people. He left them in Missouri or Tennessee when a small boy, aged 7 years. Uncle was Henry Griffins. Address me at Algiers, La.
