DEAR EDITOR - I wish to in-
quire for my sister and brother.
They were born near Broce Cross
Roads, on Haw River, Guilford
county, North Carolina. Mother,
Martha Moore, belonged to Rev.
John Moore; at the death of Rev
and Mrs. Moore was sold. A spec-
ulator, Joe Poindexter, bought us,
Charles Westley, Emma Caroline
and James Milton Rufus. Our
young master, Herbert Canon
Moore, bought mother. Walter
and Miranda, the youngest children
Another young master from Texas,
Freddie Moore, carried Emma,
Caroline and James Milton Rufus
back with him to Texas. Charles
Westley, the oldest brother, was
sold a day or two before from Joe
Poindexter’s. Caroline and James
are the ones I am inquiring after.
Write me whether dead or alive.
Address me at Mount Airy, Surry
county, North Carolina.
C. W. BLAYLOCK.
