Description

Catherine Strong searching for her mother's family who she left in Norfolk, VA. Her mother's mother Betsy Ridley, father Thomas Moseley, sisters Lizzie and Georgana, and brother William. Her mother was sold from Ridley to Ruskin and he sold Caroline to a negro trade named Mr. Hail. I left them in 1850 or '51 and haven't heard from them since. Her name at that time was Katy Ridley but she now goes by Caroline Strong.
