DEAR EDITOR: I desire to enquire of my kinfolks, whom I left in Maryland many years ago. Father's name was Summer Thompson. He used to belong to a man by the name of Caspers Oain. My mother's name was Easter. She belonged to Roger Robinson. My brothers were Williams, Sam, and Major; sisters Sarah, Ann and Rosa. I was sold and brought to this country: Sister Ann was also brought to this country. I have one son, named Samuel Dod. The last I heard of him he was in Vicksburg. This was at the close of the war. He was a Union Soldier. Kind friends, do all you can to help me find my people. Address Betsey Dod, care Rev. J.H. Cook, Brookhaven, Miss.
BETSEY DOD
