MR. EDITOR—I wish to inquire
for my mother's relatives whom she
left in Perry county, Alabama,
about [1841?]. Her father's name was
[Simon?] Clark and was owned by a
Mr. Clark. Her father was a first-
class blacksmith and a fiddler. It
was said that he could read and
write. Her mother's name was
Patient. Her sisters and brothers
wer[e] Harriet, [Leanda?], [Epsie?], Crea-
sie, Frank, William, Taylor and
Albert. Albert was sold to a Mr.
Daniel Owens, and carried to Tex-
as. Mother was taken away from
her parents when four years old
and carried to Neshoba county,
Miss. She was then carried to
Enterprise, Miss. where I now re-
side. Any information in regard
to any of their whereabouts will be
gladly and thankfully received by
me. S. L. JONES.
Enterprise, Miss.
