Rev. Albert Boulden searching for his ten children

For the Nashville Union.

Information Wanted.

On a recent visit to Washington City,
I became acquainted with a colored
Baptist minister by the name of Albert
Boulden, and became somewhat interested
in his history. He and his old
wife are there, getting along very pleasantly;
but greatly distressed about
their children, ten in number, all sold
from them a good many years ago.
They were taken from Virginia to Alabama,
and sold to two men, Robert
Peoples and Robert Bibbs. It would
be a great satisfaction to hear from
them if they are yet in the land of the
living. It was thought by interested
parties in Washington that a brief
statement and the names of the children,
published in a Nashville paper,
might be the means of identifying at
least some of them. Will you please
give this an insertion in your paper.
The names of the children are as follows:
James Boulden, Julias Boulden,
Luke Boulden, Ann Boulden, Catharine
Boulden, Joana Boulden, Robert Boulden,
Louisa Boulden, Agnes Boulden,
and Albert Boulden.

All other papers in the south that
are willing to publish the above are
requested to do so. Any information
respecting any of the above named
children may be addressed to Rev.
Albert Boulden, No. 665, L Street,
Washington, D.C., or to Rev. T.P. Childs,
Troy, Miami Co, O.

Very respectfully,
T. P. Childs,
Troy, O., March 12, 1865.
