 MR. EDITOR-I wish to inquire for my mother's people, whom she left in Norfolk, Va.  Her mother's name was Betsy Ridley; her father Thomas Moseley; sisters, Lizzie, Georgana; brother, William.  She was sold from Ridley to Ruskin, and he sold me to a negro trader by the name of Mr. Hall.  I left them in 1850 or '51, and was brought to Mississippi, and I have not heard from them since.  My name at that time was Katie Ridley.  I now go by the name of Catherine Strong.  Address me at Aberdeen, Miss., care of W. T. Strong.
