Do You Know Them?

Dawson, Ga., June 27th, 1902.

I desire to know the whereabouts of
the relatives, of Jane Harvey. She was
a slave owned by Beverly Caesar. At
the time I was sold I was 19 years of
age. My mother was Rhody Harvey,
and was owned by Erasmus Gary. My
uncle's name was Allen Harvey. I
nursed two boys for Mr. and Mrs.
Beverly Caesar, Samuel and Edward
Caesar and Joseph Edward Murrell.
Mr. Caesar had two daughters, Miss
Sarah married Mr. Erasmus Gary and
Miss Josephine married Mr. James
Murrell. I had one sister, Malinda, and
two brothers, Jerry and Samuel Harvey.
Any information will be thankfully
received by

Jane Coles, Dawson, Ga.
