Emma Moore (formerly Emma Washington) searching for her family

DEAR DEAR:--I want information
as to my people whom I left in Vir-
ginia [Virginia] some years ago. My owner
was Robert G. Hudgans; I left him
at Greensboro, White Sulphur
Springs. My mother was Lucinda
Johnson, and lived at the same
place. My father was named John
Washington and lived in Essex
county, Va. Sisters were Louisa
and Bettie, and brothers Ed John-
son [Johnson] and Jerry Johnson. My young
masters were Walter, Westcomb and
Bob Hudgans, and Sally and Milly
Hudgans, and Ellen Hudgans.
When I lived there my name was
Emma Washington; it is now Em-
ma [Emma] Moore. I was sold in Richmond,
and brought to New Orleans by
John Davis, and he sold me to a
Mr. Bruing at the trader's yard;
and I was brought to Mississippi
by John Alcorn. Address Emma
Moore, Meridian, Lauderdale co.,
Miss., in care of Mashall Roberts.
