Rosa Holloway searching for her grandmother Rosetta Thompson and others

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. ROSA HOLLOWAY.
