Mathie King searching for their father Jessie Simms, mother Nancy Shelton, and several siblings

I want to now the whereabouts of
my mother and father. My father's
name was Jessie Simms, my mother's
name was Nancy Shelton. She belonged
to a man named Walter Shelton and
lived in Hanover county, Va. She was
carried from Louisa county, Va. and
lived close to Richmond with Edward
Shelton. Soon after that she was sold
in Richmond, Va. and bought by Walter
Shelton and carried back to Hanover
county. I was sold at the same time
to a man named Ledbetter, during the
war. Since than I have known nothing
of my people. I have four sisters; Lucy,
Millie, Jennie and Louise Shelton. I
had one brother, George Shelton. Any
information will be gladly received.
Kernersville, Forsyth county, N. C.
