Do You Know Her?

I desire to find my mother. The last
time I saw her was five years ago. She
was then in Greensboro. N. C. Her
first husband's name was Ned Goosby,
last husband's name, Green Gravelly.

She goes by the name of Mo[undecipherable]lie
Gravely. She had four children, viz.
Mattie, Johnnie, Mary and Rosa Goosby,
two of which are in Danville, Va.,
one at Winston, N. C. and the other at
Martinsville, Va.

Any information will be thankfully
received by Miss Mattie Gooseby, 122
