Rosa Holloway searching for her grandmother Rosetta Thompson and family

DEAR EDITOR: I desire to find
my people whom I have not heard
from since I left them. My grandmother
in Charleston, S. C., was
Rosetta Thompson; mother, Maritana
Thompson, is dead. She had
but two children, the first is dead, I
am the babe. My name, by marriage,
is now Rosa Holloway. I desire to
inquire around Clinton, Louisiana,
for Maria, Jennie, Susann, Hester,
Rachel, Jack, Bailey and Leonard.
One man came from South Carolina
with my husband, his name is
Larkin Holloway, and when Clinton
was taken in 1863, he went off with
the soldiers. I was a refugee from
Louisiana to Mississippi in 1863,
and have been living in Scott
county since. I was born in
Charleston, S. C., Jan. 19, 1841.
If any of my friends or relatives
can be found, I would like to hear
from, or about them. Address at
Forest Station, Miss.
