$200 REWARD - The subscriber will pay
the above reward to any one who will
bring him, or to this office, his grandchild, of about
five years of age. His father's name was Jacob Mc-
Kenzie, and his mother's name was Salina. (by the
child called Nena.) The mother was formerly held by
Jacob Barrett of Linton Ga., and hired to Dr.
Carr, of Washington co., Ga. Soon after General
Sherman's army entered Savannah, the mother and
child started for the same place. At Winsboro the
mother was taken sick, and placed the child in charge
of a gentleman who had but one leg, and who pro-
mised to taken the child to Savannah for her. The
gentleman's name is unknown; but if the facts stated
shall be sufficient to identify the child, the kindness
of the one who restores him will ever be remembered
in addition to the above reward being paid.
