INFORMATION WANTED
Can any one inform me of the whereabouts of
Emily Wilson, the mother of Amanda Jane Wil-
son? She belonged to John K. Wilson, who
lived in Montgomery County, Tennessee, four
miles from Clarksville. She was sold and taken
to Mississippi, in 1856 ; or of Eveline Wilson,
who belonged to the same John K. Wilson, who,
after selling my mother, removed from Mont-
gomery County, Tennessee, to Marshal County, [Marshall]
Kentucky, eighteen miles from Paducah. Har-
riet Wilson, another sister, was sold to Joseph
Dear, and taken to Texas. My name was Aman-
da Jane Wilson. I left Kentucky in 1861 or
1862. My name now is Amanda Jane Bass.
Any information of the above named persons
will be thankfully received.
AMANDA JANE BASS,
Hamilton, C. W.
