Madison Moore searching for her mother Charity Smith

Mr. Editor: I wish to inquire
for my mother, who was taken from
Davison County, in North Carolina, in
1838. Her name was Charity
Smith. She belonged to Major Geo.
Smith, and he sold her to a trader.
We learned the trader carried her
to Georgia and sold her to a Mr.
Fulwider. Her sister was Sarah
Ann; grandmother was Millie
Smith; aunt, Mary Smith; uncle,
Alex Smith. When mother was
sold from me I was only two years
old. After the death of old Major
Smith, all of these persons as property
fell to his daughter, Miss
Anna. She married John Smith,
and he brought us to Scott county,
Miss., twenty-six years ago.
Father is James Madison Moore.
Address me at Forest, Miss.
Madison Moore
