Horace Carter searching for brother John Carter

DEAR EDITOR ----- My brother was sold in Richmond, Va., 35 years ago to Seward, and was carried to Texas. His name was John Carter. I saw a piece in your paper, I think it was him. He says his sister's name was Margaret and brother's name Henderson Carter, and he has four brothers. I have a sister, Margaret Carter, but my name is Horace Carter, and I have four brothers, all except one. My aunt's name is Betsey, grandma Peggy, mother's Ann Carter. I am now living six miles west of Oxford, Miss. My brother was nine years old when he was sold in Richmond. I belonged to Robert Carter. HORACE CARTER.
