MR. EDITOR- I am anxious to
learn the whereabouts of my people.
We were separated while in Kentucky,
near Lexington. I was sold
to Fealing Parks, and mother, two
brothers and two sisters were sold
to Mr. Fulgum, who brought them
to Fayetteville, Tenn. Our father
was left in Kentucky. His name
was Henry Young; he belonged to
Window Nancy Higgans. Mother's
name was Melinda. Two brothers,
William Henry and Edward; two
sisters, Sarah and Bettie Fulgum.
My name was Mary Jane Parks; I
am the oldest daughter. Since I
married my name is Mary Jane
Jackson. Any one knowing anything
of their whereabouts will do
a great kindness to write me at
Bentonville, Ark., or Rev. W. R.
R. Duncan, presiding elders, Van
