Do You Know Them.

I desire to know the whereabouts of
my mother, Frances Woodson, who
sometimes went by Frances Bowles,
which was her owner's name. She was
born in and sold from Goochland Coun-
ty, Va. into Florida, at which place she
was when last heard of. She then had
two daughters with her. Any informa-
tion will be gladly received.

Address, Mrs. MELINDA ROBINSON,
14 1/2 W. Jackson St.,
Richmond, Va.

Florida papers please copy.
