Information Wanted.
Ministers of colored churches in Louisiana

The brothers and sisters (John, Peter,

daughter of the late Moses and Eliza Richardson,
of Craven county, N. C., are anxious
to learn of her whereabouts. Dorcas was

some few years prior to the late war, and
taken to New Orleans, La., by one Page, a
slave trader; since which time no tidings of
her have been received by her relatives.
Any information in the premises will be
gratefully received and appreciated.
