John R. Hatter seeking information of his mother Susan Collins


I desire to know the where abouts of
my mother. My master's name was
John Winn of Richmond. He was
cashier of the Manchester Bank at one
time. My mother was the slave of R.
E. Nelson and her name was Susan
Collins. They told me my name was
John Robinson when I was brought
north. I was too young to know. I
named myself Hatter, and when I was
in Richmond in 1876 to see my old
master he told me my real name. My
mother was sold farther south. Any
information will be thankfully
Franklinville, Catt Co., N.Y.
