Do You Know Them?
I desire to know the whereabouts of some of my people. I was given in charge of Classy Gaines of Farmville, Va., who came to Richmond to visit her son, whose name was Washington Gaines. I was given to her by a person called my aunt. I called her sister and she had promised me to a lady across the ocean, but Mrs. Classy Gaines persuaded her to let her have me. I was carried to Farmville. My name is Katie Holston, but in Farmville my name was Katie Gaines. In Richmond, it was Katie. I did not know my aunt's name. Her children were Junius, Mayliza and "Shugg."
Washington Gaines was a well-known man there and I think he knows from where the old lady got me. Any information concerning them will be gladly received by
