Dear Editor-- I desire to find
my wife's uncle. His name was
Charles Bender, and used to belong
to Mr. Griffin Bender, in Jasper
county Mississippi. His
mother's name was Chanie Bender.
He has a hand burnt off when a
child. He ran away from his owners
one year before the war. The
last heard of him was that he had
gone to Vicksburg, Miss. My wife's
name was Callie Bender, now Calelle
Brown. Any information about
him will be gladly received.
Address, Rev. C. H. Brown, Moss
Point P. O., Jackson county, Miss.

State

Mississippi
