I desire information concerning my sister,
whose original name was Emeline Vance. She
was sold from St. Joseph, Mo., a year before
the war, by Henry Maxwell. Think she went
to Texas. She formerly belonged to the Cummin's,
of Louisville, Ky At the time of the
selling she had two sisters, myself, formerly
Matilda Vance, and Mrs. Mary Hill, who lived
in Randolph county, Mo., and two brothers,
William Vance and Jefferson Vance. We were
all raised in St. Louis, Mo., where William
Vance died. Anyone giving the desired
information will be duly rewarded by Mrs Matild
Richardson, Elwood, Doniphan Co., Kan.
