Relation

E.T. Hill is the same Eloise T. Hill who put out an ad in the Christian Recorder (Philadelphia, PA) two years after this ad, in 1893. In the Freeman ad, she offers more details and is looking for her mother but also for two other people not mentioned in the Christian Recorder Ad. It also appears that she moved from Texas to California between those two years.

That ad can be found here: http://informationwanted.org/items/show/591

Transcription

I desire to find my lost relatives. My mother's
name was Fannie Scott, my sister's name
was Queen Victory Scott, brother's name was
Patience Scott; my name is Eloise Scott. We
were all owned by a man by the name of Samuel
Scott; he lived near Lynchburg, Va., near a
little place called Mays' Grocery. I was bought
by a Negro-trader by the name of Peter Hunter
just before the war. Any information concerning
my relatives will be cheerfully received by
Mrs. E. T. Hill (nee Scott,) 817 Red River street,
Austin, Texas.

State

Texas
Virginia
