Emily Wilson (formerly Emily Priest) searching for her daughter Mary Ann

DEAR EDITOR: I wish to inquire for my daughter Mary Ann. I was sold from her in 1846 At that time we both belonged to Daniel Priest, who lived in -----, Montgomery county, Ky. I was sold to Daniel Bates, who lived in Bourbon Co., Ky. Afterward I was sold to a trader named Pierce Griffin. He carried me to Louisiana, on Bayou Plaquemines, twenty five miles below Baton Rouge. My name at that time was Emily Priest; now it is Emily Wilson. The last time I heard from my daughter she was in Natchez, Miss., living with a doctor whose first name was John, last name I never heard. Address me at Topeka, Kansas, 564 Monroe Street
