I would like to inquire for my relatives
separated from me in slave times. My mother and
her three daughters were taken from Warrenton
county, Georgia, and carried to Grenada,
Miss., in 1860. My mother's name was Lydia
Bell, and my sisters' names were Rosetta Bell
and Helen Bell, and my name was Ann Bell.
We belonged to widow Sallie Bell, in Warrenton
county, Georgia, and our owner while in
Grenada, Miss., was Sebron Jones. My mother
and sister Rosetta were sent from Grenada,
Miss., to Holly Springs, Miss., to a slave holder
named Apple White, and my sister Helen was
sent to Sunflower, Miss. I was sent back to
Fulton, Ga., and sold to Ed. Hubbert. Any
information concerning any of these persons will
be cheerfully received by Mrs. Ann Waddell,
(formerly Ann Bell, 178 Old Wheat street,
Atlanta, Ga.
