I desire to find some of my old friends with
whom I lived during slavery. I first belonged
to John Stokley, and was sold to Jefferson
Burnette. Some of those with whom I lived were,
Catherine Burnette, Bob Burnette, Moses
Stokley, and Burk Stokley. My object is. to
secure information concerning my mother. who
lived in North Carolina. Her name was
Rebecca Patten: she belonged to John Patten
who lived in Ashville, N. C. and at one time
owned the Warm Springs, She was married to
a man by the name of "Pad" or Thadeus
Johnson. My name is Charles Webb, but was owned
by Allman, Stokley, and Burnette and always
known as Charles Webb. Any information
given will be gladly received. I am willing to
give a liberal reward to find my mother.
Respectfully,
CHAS. A. WEBB.
