Caroline Williams searching for her sister Francis Austin

MR. EDITOR ---- I wish to inquire for my sister. Her name was Francis Austin, and belonged to Mary Austin. A negro trader bought her by the name of Bess about thirty-five years ago. He sold her in Lexington, Mo.; he bought her in the same State. Her mother's name was Clara Austin. There was two more children, brother Amos and myself, Caroline Austin. Our mother came to her death by hanging herself. My sister had one child when she was sold named Eliza Catherine. My stepfather, Thos. Rines, belonged to Mr. Thos. Rines in Missouri. He was bought and sold by a negro trader, sold in the South. I should like to hear from him.
