Relation

Baltimore Sun, October 19, 1839, pg. 1: Moses Lawrence, living on Curtis' Creek, Anne Arundel County, MD, placed a "runaway slave" ad for Alfred Toogood, age about 18. Presumably the same Alfred Toogood mentioned in Samuel Toogood's 1873 information wanted ad.

Also, the same searcher placed an ad in The New York Age, June 7, 1890. Name spelled "Samuel Togood" in that ad.
