MR. EDITOR--I wish to inquire
for my people; I left them in Stillsburg,
Barton county, Ga. We were
slaves of Mr. Billy Shaw. He had
two sons named Elijah and Elisha
Shaw. My mother's name was
Ann Shaw; her husband belonged
to Mr. Frank Henderson, who lived
near the Baptist Church on Raccoon
Creek, on the main road from
Stillsburg to Cartersville. I have
one sister named Francis, and
brothers named Benjamin, Robert
and Burl. My name is John Green
Shaw; address me at Germantown,
Mason county, Ky.
