Rev. Samuel Scroggins seeking information of his mother Martha Ann and siblings

MR. EDITOR --- Please allow me space in your columns to inquire for some lost friends of mine who have been separated from me since early life. My mothers name was Martha Ann, and belonged to John Scroggins, and lived in Rutherford county, Tenn., near Murfreesboro, on Bradley Creek. Mr. Editor, we Methodists know where the old Shiloh Church stands, lived near that place, but moved to Missouri, about the year 1844, to Morgan county, and was sold to a man by the name of Daniel Dale, and was shortly moved to Texas. My two sisters were named Jemima and Eliza. I have three brother whose names were Daniel Defate, Abraham and Peter. My name is Samuel Mango Scroggins, but properly known by the name of Samuel Scroggin; my dear old mother was known to be a good and faithful member of the M. E. Church, but as to brothers and sisters I can not say, but I will endeavor to ever pray for them. As I professed religion at the age of 14 years and joined the M. E. Church, and as I am a pastor of that Church, I will try to do my whole duty, and hope that pastors will read this letter from their pulpits. Address me at Sherman, Grayson county, Texas. REV. SAM'L SCROGGINS.
