Lucinda Martin searching for her mother Retta, siblings, and acquaintances

MR. EDITOR--Assist me to find my people in Tennessee. I was raised near Centreville, Tennessee, and belonged to Major Robert Toddy. I was sold to Wm. Foster who brought me to Mississippi about 30 years ago. When I came away from Centreville a man named Jim Easly was postmaster there. I left my mother named Retta, and five sisters and one brother, also five children, the oldest one named Archie, next Matthew, next George, the oldest daughter Ellen (called Poll for a nick-name), and Nancy Retta, the youngest. Their father was Calvin Martin. I would also like to inquire about my fellow servants, colored people named Martin. Address Mrs. Lucinda Martin, Hazlehurst, Miss.
