Amos Wilder (formerly Amos Philgore) seeking information about his brother George Wilder, sisters Jane and Hannah Williford, and several family members

MR. EDITOR. ---- I desire to inquire for my people. I left them in Quincy, Florida in 1861, in Gadson county. My oldest brother went by the name of George Wilder; my younger brother belonged to Foreman and Muse; two sisters, the oldest named Jane, she belonged to William and Jessie Wilder, and she was brought from Florida to New Orleans, La., in the year 1851; my youngest sister was named Hanna Williford; she and my mother, Sarah Williford, her real name was Sarah Wilder, I left in Leon county, below Talahassee, in 1858. My daughter, Sarah Forbes, her mother named Nancy Forbes, I left at Quincy, Florida in 1861. While I was in Florida I went by the name of Amos Philgore, but since the emancipation I go by my father's name, Amos Wilder. The last time I heard from my daughter she was married to a man by the name of Thomas; I never learned his given name. Any information as to their whereabouts will be thankfully received. Address, Amos Wilder, Orange, Orange county, Texas.
