MR. EDITOR--Assist me to find
my people in Tennessee. I was
raised near Centreville, Tennessee,
and belonged to Major Robert
Toddy. I was sold to Wm. Foster
who brought me to Mississippi
about 30 years ago. When I came
away from Centreville a man
named Jim Easly was postmaster
there. I left my mother named
Retta, and five sisters and one
brother, also five children, the
oldest one named Archie, next
Matthew, next George, the oldest
daughter Ellen (called Poll for a
nick-name), and Nancy Retta, the
youngest. Their father was Calvin
Martin. I would also like to
inquire about my fellow-servants,
colored people named Martin.
Address Mrs. Lucinda Martin,
Hazlehurst, Miss.
