Miss P. L. Foster seeking her father's family including father Joe Foster

DEAR EDITOR -- I wish to inquire for my father's people. He belonged to the Dewalt family in Newberry district, South Carolina, and was named Joe Foster. He left his home with nine children and a wife. Mother was Lydia and had six daughters and three sons -- Manda, Sarah, Victoria, Emeline, Pitcy, Ellen, Joseph, Paul and Albert. We left here in 1867 on account of bushwhackers. My father got into a lawsuit with a white man and won the suit, and then the bushwhackers began to come around his house at night like a pack of hounds after a bear. My stepmother is now Lucy Dewalt. Father's uncle was Levi, his brothers were Paul, Silas and William. Address me at Belle Prairie, Yazoo county, Miss. P. L. FOSTER.
