Information Wanted.
INFORMATION is wanted of my moth-
er, whom I left in Fauquier county,
Va., in 1844, and I was sold in Richmond,
Va., to Saml. Copeland. I formerly be-
longed to Robert Rogers. I am very
anxious to hear from my mother, and
and information in relation to her where-
abouts will be very thankfully received.
My mother's name was Betty, and was
sold by Col. Briggs to James French--
Any information by letter, addressed to
the Colored Tennessean, Box 1150, will be
thankfully received.
