Rachel Farrow searching for her family

DEAR EDITOR: I wish to inquire for my people. I left them in Mechlenburg county, Va, near Bolton about thirty-eight or thirty nine years ago. Mother's name was Harlan; mine is Rachel. We belonged to Ansell Roberts. Mother had ten children, four boys and six girls. After Roberts died, I was sold to Crawford Hughes seven miles below. Brothers were Giles, John, Willis, and Gilbert; sisters, Lethe, Chaney, Harriett, Keziah, and Quntrunie. I was sold at the death of Crawford Hughes to a negro trader named Hudson, who brought me to Alabama. I had a son four years old when I was last sold, named Aaron. He was left at the Hughes place. I have only heard from him once since I left there. Joe Hudson sold me to Alexander Brown, who brought me to Texas, where I now live. Address me at Anderson, grimes Co., RACHEL FARROW
