Kitty Presnell would like to
know the whereabouts of her
children whom she was parted from
before the emancipation. They were
separated from her at Flat Lake,
La. We were then living with
Jesse Paxton. I was sold to Erwin
Williams. There I was parted
from my three children, viz: Davie,
Mariah and Catherine. I have
learned since that they were
carried to the State of Arkansas and
there sold across the river from
Little Rock. I also learn that
Jesse Paxton lived in Little Rock,
Ark. I now go by the name of
Kitty Presnell. Address me at
Navasota, Texas.
