DEAR EDITOR—I wish to inquire
about my people. My mother, Fan-
nie Holt, belonged to Wm. Holt.
My father was Thos. Olive, and he
was sold to Mr. Taylor. My grand-
mother, Sarah Holt, belonged to
the same man my mother did. Sis-
ters were Dollie, Angeline and
Fannie Jane. My brother was Wm.
Holt. I was sold in Columbus,
Tenn., by Calvin Holt, my young
master, to Wm. Styles. He brought
me to Mississippi, where I yet re-
main. I left my mother, father,
sisters and brother 2 miles south of
Mooreville, Tenn. My aunt, Malin
da Whitaker, belonged to the Mc-
Cain Baptist Church. I was turned
over to Hurch McGhee by Wm.
Styles. Address me at Oktoc,
Miss. CHARLOTTE MCGEE.

State

Mississippi
Tennessee
