DEAR EDITOR—I wish to inquire
for my uncle Pharah, who belonged
to Michael Gilbert; also Plato. We
are from Barnwell county, South
Carolina. My father is here with
me; his name is Sam Thickland; he
used to go by the name of Sanko
Gilbert. Plato used to live 15
miles below Alexandria, La., where
he was sold to John McGee. My
grandmother was named Nancy
Gilbert; my mother is Alsy Gilbert.
The most of us have been separated
33 [35?] years. Any one knowing of any
of them will please write me, in
care of Rev. H. J. Wright, pastor
Asbury M. E. Church, Natchi-
toches, La.
ANDREW THICKLAND.

State

Louisiana
South Carolina
