Rev. Geo. A. Payne searching for his family including father Walter and mother Sarah

DEAR EDITOR: I wish to inquire for my relatives, father, mother, sisters, brother, uncles, and grandmother. We lived in Alabama and belonged to the same owner with the exception of grandmother and uncle. I do not remember the county, but town was Claiborne. Our owner, Samuel Cobbs, was shot by young Thomas Blaise, as he was on the way to the postoffice, and was carried to his son's house from off the road. Sometime after we were sold at sheriffs sale. My brother fell to Miss Betsey, who married Thomas Nicholas. Frank Payne bought me. We were both carried on Tombigbee river, near Ovenbluff. Two plantations adjoining belonged to Widow Payne. Frank Payne was her son, Thomas Nicholas her agent. Father was named Walter, mother, Sarah, grandmother, Gracia, uncle Tobe. Address me at Convent P.O. Louisiana. Rev. Geo. A. Payne.
