Solomon Dean searching for his sisters Eliza and Frances and several members of his extended family

My family belonged to Mr. Bennett,
in Charleston, S. C. and we had
his name. I do not remember my
father. My mother's name was
Nancy; she died at Bennett's. I
had a sister Eliza, and another sister
Frances. Bennett sold us just
before the war to a slave dealer
named Anker, and we were separated.
Our grand-parents were Jacob
and Milly Roberson, and they lived
at Beaufort, S.C. I had two aunts
named Mary and Hester Bennett
and three of my uncles were Joseph,
Benjamin and Peter Roberson. I
was sold by Anker to Mr. Dean in
Tennessee. I will receive any in-
formation concerning my dear relatives
most thankfully. Address
Solomon Dean, Nolensville, Tennessee.
