PERSONAL

PERSONAL. - I wish to obtain infor-
mation in regard to my wife, SUSAN, and TWO
CHILDREN - one a girl, named NELLY, and the
other a boy, named CARTER. They formerly be-
longed to Mrs. Ann Cook, of Clarke county, and I
belonged to Hugh Nelson, of the same county.
About the time General Lee's army went into
Pennsylvania we were all brought to Richmond
and sold and separated. Any information as to
them left at the Dispatch office will be thankfully
received. GEORGE PEARMAN,
ap 23 - 3t* Colored.
