A Mother of Twenty-seven Children
in Search of Her Offspring.

To the Editor of the Banner:

Knowing that you have always been
kind to the poor I desire to put this
notice in your paper:

I desire to know of the whereabouts
of my five children (colored), viz:
Polly Bell, Grafton Bell, Jeremiah Bell,
Lorenzo Bell and Fanny Bell. They
lived in Dickson County when last
heard from. I have made every effort
in my power to hear from them, and,
having failed therein, am very un-
happy.

We were separated in the year 1858,
at which time we resides in Dickson
County, at Bell's Iron Works.

I have had twenty-seven children, and
now I don't know the whereabouts of
but three. Very respectfully,
Jane Bell,
Formerly servant of Montgomery
Bell and now at the Planters' Hotel,
Summer Street.
